Well, last month I wanted to write something in my blog every day, and, sadly, it’s been about a month since I last wrote in my blog. I sure didn’t keep up with it! I think I’ll try again this month. Okay, so I’m going to try and write a blog post with at least 300 words.
In my last blog post I wrote a list of some things that I would like to receive for my birthday. One thing on the list that I got from my mom was the purple “No-Meat Athlete” t-shirt! I was so happy to be able to wear it in a race later that week. I wore it in a half-marathon — it was my first time to run a half-marathon. I felt so good afterwards, and I even came in 3rd place for women ages 45-49!! As I crossed the finish line, the announcer must have noticed my t-shirt and when he read aloud my number and time he said I was “representing vegetarians everywhere”! It made made me smile!
This past Saturday I was in a 5k. I decided not to wear that t-shirt, but I did wear another purple t-shirt I have (love purple!). It was a small race, but I came in 1st place for women ages 40-49! I was pretty excited.
It was near a playground, and my son and I were on the swings while they called out the winners. They announced the second place winner first, and when the announcer didn’t call out my name, I commented to my son, “Oh, I guess I didn’t get anything.” I was sure if I were to have placed I would have gotten second place or nothing. And then, surprisingly, the announcer called out my name for first place! So fun!
I don’t have any more races this month, but I have three coming up in July! One is a four-mile run, one is a sprint triathlon, and one is a 5k color run I’m going to do with my kiddos. I’ve passed 300 words now. See you tomorrow!
