I did it! I finished my 5K! I even ran part of it (mostly when the critters in the forest next to me rustled around). There was a big hill involved too.
And yes I was donning gingerbread man socks. I grabbed a pair of socks quickly in the dark as to not wake the two men sleeping in my bed (my husband and 2 year old...what were you thinking?? I am a D-mom remember, I don't have the time or energy for that much excitement besides my man is all I need. *wink* ) and they just happened to have gingerbread men on them.
I finished in 54 minutes (I didn't keep track of the seconds)!
I am determined to keep up my walking now. Maybe begin to wog and who knows maybe one day this mommy will be a runner too. (never like Reyna or her sister though, they are just pure awesomeness I think it runs in their blood)
