Julies Virtual

GRRR That fat roll!!!
Today was the Western PA Epilepsy Fun Run/Walk. My youngest son, Branden, created a team in honor of my daughter, Amber, who was diagnosed with Epilepsy in 1998. Branden will be a Junior in High School next year.  Before he graduates he has to do a community project, and then do a presention. So, he created a team, raised funds by selling Christmas cookies, having a yard sale, and mailing letters to local businesses.  Our team raised 710.00 for the Epilepsy Foundation.
I ran the 3 mile, my husband, Amber and Branden walked the two mile.  I was a little worried because I havent had a good run in two weeks. Ive been walking three times a week with my sister, and my running has taken the back burner. This race was not officially timed. There was a clock at the end of the race, but there are no posted times. Its a true FUN RUN.

 It was .1 short!!! After I crossed the finish line, I walked to make it up
Mile one: 11.26
Mile two: 12:05
Mile Three: 11:29

I HAVE NEVER run a race and been under a 13!!!! I was so excited!!! This is the fasted I have ever run!!! My intervals are working!! Im getting faster!!!
