If I don't return

to edit this post by, say late afternoonish, send out a St. Bernard with some whiskey and fried chicken because my first attempt at a 10K did not. go. well. and maybe I am injured and/or starving at the park, or maybe just in my yard since I am walking to the park from my house.

Oh, and to clarify from the other day, I will not be RUNNING a 10K. I will be participating in a 10K which means all the fit and trim people who pass out the water and the bananas at the end will be staring at their watches and rolling their eyes waiting for the fattish lady (they are more polite than I am) to get the hell done or pass out and get in the ambulance already, because they are ready to take their 9 year olds home who finished the 10K forever ago.

Until I return then....bye. If I never return...I love you...

Edited to add: Thanks for all the encouragement, and guess what? I DID IT! Check out my girlie girl. (She is overstating a bit, I actually did just over 6.75 miles in 2 hours and 8 minutes).

Wow!! I walked a 5K last fall and that was really hard on me! I cannot imagine what a wreck I would be if it was twice as long! You are my hero, HP.

WOW! You go, girl! We'll be here waiting with the booze and chocolate here at the finish line.

Also, I love that program that runs at the side with the athletic girl. That is so cute!!! I want one!

CONGRATS!! What an accomplishment!
In your honor, I'm going to go for a run/jog/walk here in Htown..the weather is 70 degrees and not a cloud in the sky, and I'll be running through trails in the deep piney woods of East Texas (you know where Huntsville is, right??--I'm visiting my parents again).
CONGRATS again!

That is freakin' AWESOME! Woot! Woot! Think of all the activity points you racked up! You could drink six pack and a whole bucket of chicken!

That is really awesome. I'm fairly certain I couldn't run half a k. I feel like dying after a 20 minute video.
