I did it, I did it, I did it, hooray! I completed the Catholic Exchange Virtual 5K and I’m still living to tell the tale!
Like Cari, I had to battle spooky New England fall weather on Saturday to git r done. Fun fact, my run route passed this house, which is not only the oldest surviving timber frame house in North America, but also allegedly haunted!
Anywho, I didn’t notice any spirits or spookies, probably because I was too preoccupied with how flipping COLD I was for the first half of the 5K. The second half I was just praying that the skies would refrain from opening up. And they obligingly did not open up! Upon returning to the house, Dave and our friend Pat had made a finish line for me and a sign to cheer me on. They were very proud of both! I’ll finish this lame, self-serving post with some pictures and a thank you to Cari and Catholic Exchange for giving me a goal to work towards, because I was too nervous to work towards a real 5K with other, better runners and the imaginary pressure that goes along with that.
