What I did last summer!

Okay, just one of the things I did last summer...:)

Anyone who knows me has never called me an "athlete". I'm not a big fan of sweating. I always wanted to be able to do a sport well, but despite some sincere effort, I never pulled it off. Best I did was playing four-square at the neighborhood pool when I was a kid.

On my birthday last year, I decided I needed to exercise. I'd been sedentary too long. So I decided to sign up to WALK a half-marathon. Yes, I trained for it. The plan was to do two shortish walks during the week and a long walk on the weekend. Since I wanted to know how I would perform, I went ahead and walked the entire 13.1 miles during a training session. I did it on my treadmill as I watched The Sound Of Music. Thank goodness for super-long movies!:)

I'm pleased to report that I finished the marathon and got my little medal. It was an exhilarating experience. Here's a pic of me with my medal. Like my cover girl look?:)
