Courage

Today i tool part in the Turkey Trot in Hornell, NY.  There was a fun run for tiny tots followed by a 5k run for the energetic, and a 5k walk for the rest.

My son and his step-daughters ran and for back in a respectable 28 minutes.  My daughter-in-law (who had just come off an overnight shift took my two grandchildren and got back in just over an hour.

I started the walk with them but quickly fell back.  I do not exercise at all.  Kitchen to the front door to pick up the newspaper is about it.  So when I saw a woman on crutches I thought I would walk with her – that would be about my pace!  We came in last. (Without her I would have come in last anyway) but our time was 1 hour 8 minutes and some seconds. Pretty damn good if you ask me for a young woman who had been in a car accident, had her leg crushed and pelvis broken, and a 69-year-old who never exercises.

The time was unimportant.  We finished.  And we had a wonderful experience.  Thanks Leah.
