Finished Race For The Cure 5-K in 47.42

Thanks to everyone who supported me, both emotionally and financially

Apologies to those who have already seen this picture on Tumblr and/or Twitter.


Not a bad time for my decrepit 47 year old self.
We also rode the bikes down to the Ferry Building and back so my total on the day is 6 miles biking and 3..1 miles run/walk/run.

Race For The Cure

I'm thinking I'll sign up for Bridge to Bridge and do the 7-K, as a transition to trying 10-K again. (And then hopefully at least one more 1/2 Marathon.)

It was very sunny, hence the big sunglasses, but not too hot. It was a good flat course and I'm happy with the time.

Well done, you! What was the course like, hilly or flat? (Or is that a dumb question, I assume there's SOME flat ground in SF, lol.)

Flat route-from the Ferry Building to the ball park and back. No chance for me to get lost, which is always nice.

You're wonderful! I now found my running shorts again, and I'm going to start running soon (the weather is supposed to turn cool tomorrow anyway). I even found a reasonable training schedule for the beginning - it takes ten weeks to go from couch potato to running 5K, but I may want to take it slower. You've been my role model, hon.

PS Thanks to my beloved meds I've reached a decent weight, but I still need to get a bit more fit. You're my inspiration! Since I started to eat enough I feel much more energetic (duh).

I've heard good things about the C25K program. Nutrition is really important and the hard part is finding exactly what works for you.
I'm an advocate of carbs, but you'll find people preaching high protein from the mountainsides.
