Goal accomplished: life continues


10k, originally uploaded by philipco.

Today I proved that fatboys still run races.

Thanks to Dr. Gainey, I ran the Vulcan 10k today with only a few steps walked around mile 3. Dr. Gainey, Misty Akins, and I got through the race together and it was a lot of fun.

Next up, the Jingle Bell Run, a 5k on December 1. Now that I know I can live through these things, I'm going to challenge the choir to join me!

I used to run(not 10K by any stretch) and then my arthritis in my knees got bad and so I can't anymore. : /

I used to run and then I realized that my knees hurt even in dreams so now I just dream about flying:)

I ran cross country my first 2 years of high school and hated it. I loved running hurdles though

Can I come? Maybe I could live through a 5K. Maybe I'll walk, cuz I'm a wuss.
