Another June… Another 5k

I’m all about meeting goals, especially if they’re my own. And this past weekend, I was able to meet one of my yearly goals in a unique and fun way.

If you check out my blogroll on this page, you’ll see a link to Phyllisa’s blog, Diagnosed Not Defeated. On Saturday, Phyllisa celebrated her 40th birthday.

As part of her celebration, she arranged the Fit & Fabulous Virtual 5k… a chance for 40 people all over the world to complete their own 5k (5,000 kilometers) wherever they were.

For the last several years, I’ve usually participated in my local 5K, held about five minutes from where I live. This year, the local 5k is on Father’s Day, and I’ll be out of town. So when Phyllisa announced her virtual 5k to be held a week earlier, I jumped at the chance.

This gave me an opportunity to meet a goal I’ve had for a while now: to complete a 5k every year through age 60. I’m 57 now, and completing this event means I’m still on track to meet that goal, with only three more years to go.

Here’s a photo with me wearing the stylish race bib. And also a couple of short videos… one from just before the run, and one from about 15 minutes after.

As I mention in the last video, it was probably the slowest 5k I’ve run in my entire life. But it was still great fun.

Thanks to Phyllisa for organizing this event. You should definitely read her blog too. This was a terrific happening, and a nice way to get my weekend started. Fit & Fabulous 5k… Done!
