I have greatly enjoyed my journey to a more active lifestyle, having a lot more time outdoors, getting in exercise and continuing the journey of weight loss and in general a more healthy way of living my life – and from a few 5k’s now (Color Me Rad & Summer Series) I have officially had my first 10k this past weekend the Brian Waterbury Memorial Rock to Pier Fun Run – It was a great start to what I hope to be many more 5/10k options but too just some good time outdoors with the beautiful company show in this picture here – Daisy and I had a great time! She was staying in San Luis Obispo with her Mom and Sister and I further south in Grover Beach with my brother’s family & my parents – but I got to show her around and we had a blast!
The times were posted for the 10k and while I had hoped to have completed in an hour and a half, I missed the mark a little at 01:49:39 – still not horrible for me, but Daisy walked/ran with me as I am still getting there slowly but surely, but it was a fun weekend!
More events are coming up, more Summer Series (one today!) and another 10k in October, The Springville Apple Run – should be a lot of fun and is a trail run of which I’ve never done, but after running on the beach, should be a interesting experience:
The map looks pretty cool, part of me wants to go at least walk it before hand to have a better idea of the course, but may just keep training and be ready day of 😀
All in all I’m excited to continue runs like these, I still want to do more Color Me Rad, though less likely out of the area, will probably continue to just a once a year bit of fun with friends and family as it passes through Bakersfield, but really enjoying the exercise! Like in my last post, a journey for sure, but this past weekend was a blast, just hope to keep moving forward both in health and in life! God is Good and I praise him for the ability to move and be active!
