Our First 5k

A few of us on the Peak Resource Group office team completed our first 5k this weekend.

It wasn't pretty.  It wasn't fast.  We made it.

It wasn’t pretty. It wasn’t fast. We made it.

We all gripe around the office that we sit too much.  We work too much.  We sit AND work too much.  There is the ever popular comment that we EAT too much.

We talk about this so much that we decided, Dang It, we are going to actually do something about it!

Well, a few of us bravely signed up for the Boulder Dash in Forsyth county on April 26th.  Being the ‘green beans’ to races that we all are, we did NOT know that this was around a rock quarry and that there were steep hills involved.

Of course I had goals.  Milestones. Targets to reach as we are all metrics driven.  My personal goals were:
To beat out many of the ‘stroller moms’.  Having a mom blast by me with twins (in a jog stroller of course!)  was one thing – having the mom with a foot in a brace?  Nope – that was so NOT going to happen.

To not be last.  I’m ok not being first.  I’m ok not being anywhere near first.  I’m not ok with being dead last.  Ever.  With anything.  I notified my pals that I was not above pushing them down or tripping them near the end if I had to.  Luckily I did not have to cause injury.

-To not have to see the moon come up, that one lonely security guard that had to hang around until the ‘last person finished’ – as he waited for me.

To not end up on the news as the ambulance takes me away for falling in the Quarry.

It was a blast.  I ran some (well, ok a little – but it’s a start right?) and walked most.  It was a great time.  I am going to try to book at least one a month.  It is something I can do, hopefully without looking totally stupid.
