People often ask me “do you run?” and my answer is always the same – “not unless some one is chasing me”. Well, this weekend…all that changed.
A couple weeks back, a close friend who is a school teacher for Autistic children at my former Elementary School, challenged me to do a 5K. My first reaction was a chuckle, but then i found out it was to benefit the Special Olympics. I have a soft spot for kids in general, but the special needs kids…BIG soft spot.
So, here i am – never run or jogged in my life, finishing my 1st 5K!
What are you waiting for, folks? Get out there and do something “feel good” for the people in your community…then blog about it 🙂
