I was being a big baby because I missed it by 28 seconds. Then out of the blue, I heard my name called, and I had won runner up for my age group!
That whole day changed my mindset on how I respond to missing my goals.
My dream goal is still to get that sub 30, but I no longer think I've failed, if I don't make it.
Saturday I ran a 5k with some kids from my youth group. Again, it was a small race, but I surely wasn't expecting to win anything. My time was 34 minutes, so I didn't even consider it a possibility.
So I was shocked once again when they called my name! I won 3rd place in my age group (30-39).
After cleaning up after the race Jeremy took me out and spoiled me for Mothers Day.
First we went canoeing. I wanted to redeem my last traumatic canoeing experience from a few years ago, and I did. There was no hyperventilating or freaking out involved this time. It was lovely.
Did you run or race this weekend?
Have you been canoeing?
