Tuesdays with a Twist Link Party #359

Our news this week...  So, something cool happened.  I haven't run in a timed 5k since around 2003, but have been back into distance running for quite a while.  My daughter has asked me to run a half marathon with her this Autumn, so training is happening now since my hip is still somewhat of a struggle even after surgery.  (If you are curious about my comeback, look for posts titled "Fitness After 50)  I registered for a 5k on Leap Day, but almost chickened out on the way there.  It was a very positive experience with all the participants encouraging anyone near them.  I did my best and did not need to walk, even though a couple of hills felt pretty difficult.  My time wasn't great and I left after having a bottle of water.  Here's the cool thing.  A couple of days after the race, the organizer called to say she had a medal for me because I got THIRD PLACE in my age division!  No one was more surprised than me!

The lesson?  Be brave.  Go to your race.  A lovely surprise may be waiting for you!

I am so glad you are here to party today!  There is no limit on links as long as they are family friendly including giveaways, Etsy shops and other link parties.  Please remember to visit some fellow party animals and leave positive comments!

Every Monday there's a party here called You're the Star.  No limit on links to family friendly posts.

And now for today's fun activity!
