Exactly 9 weeks after my surgery I am proud to have completed my first 5K in a very long time! The race was to raise money for a local teacher who is battling cancer and it was really inspiring to see how many neighbors, parents and students showed up on a Thursday night to show their support. We ran through the streets of Independence and the decorated homes were a great distraction!
It's hard not to compare my current pace with the past but considering everything my body has been through I am happy to have come in under 40 minutes:)
It felt good to be active again and at the same support such a worthy cause. Looking forward to getting out there more in 2017!
