My 5K Charity Walk...Plan B

Saturday, January 21, 2012

My 5K Charity Walk was at 7:00AM this morning. At that time it was POURING rain with very strong, gusty winds. Now I'm not a cold weather person, even on a dry day. I live in So. Calif. where we don't often get rain like this, so I don't have any real rain gear. Soaking wet and freezing cold would never have worked for me....if that makes me a wimp, so be it. So I didn't do the Walk. BUT....I went with Plan B.

By 1:00 the storm had passed thru. And although the wind was still kicking pretty strong, the sun was out. So I got my trusty pedometer and went and did the 5K this afternoon by myself. I even beat my personal challenge of finishing under one hour...I did it in 57:03!!!

This is going to be my new goal...doing this at least once a month!

    This is a little late but I'm old and slow....lol. I'm so proud of your choice and I'm glad you achieved your January goal of doing the walk. Your Plan B was just perfect.
    So now what's your February goal??? I need something to keep you pushing forward because I'm getting anxious for my next goodie!!!

    Rock on! I am really glad you did it - even a Plan B is something other than a Plan Zero! Congrats :o)

    Good for you! I have that goal! I started last April with my first 5k and did 7 to finish off 2011. Continued the goal for 2012, did my first one last Saturday ~ it was dry but 27 degrees in St. Louis that morning. We finished it and stayed warm the whole time with all our layers on! It'll be fun to keep up with your 5k's. My next one is Feb. 12 ~ The Run for the Chocolate ~ in honor of Valentines Day. Hope it it warmer on that day....and dry!
    You were so smart to wait till the rain stopped! Kudos for doing it on your own! emoticon
