A huge step
Sunday, July 25, 2010
I took a huge step...at least it was for me. I really wanted to do the Otters "Start inside the Ballpark" 5k. One as a way to close out year 52 and usher in 53. I've never participated in a race that I didn't have someone going with me or that I knew would be there. Today that changed. I participated in and finished the race.
I feel that I've accomplished a major milestone. At least it was one for me. I don't go places or do things by myself. I don't even go shopping by myself. There has to be someone with me or going to be there that I know. Not sure why. I just is.
Today I put an end to that. I can do things without other people being there I know. I can go places with someone being there that I know. I proved it to myself. Today I was the only one that matter. I did this for me and me alone. I proved to myself that I can and I'm able.
Now I'm off to take a shower. I'll post the official time when there posted online. I finished somewhere around 52 minutes.
