I ran (or jogged/walked) my first 5K yesterday. It was cross country which I had not practiced for. But the weather was nice and hot - no rain. I did not come in last, which is good and I finished under 45 minutes (43:03) which was what I was aiming for. Lots of room for improvement. I just don't enjoy running. Walking/Hiking yes but not running.
Down to 2 weeks til I leave for the Grand Canyon. They are having record high temps out west. We are going to take our time hiking and avoid injuries. Still gathering up all of the small last minute items we need. Then to start packing and hope I don't forget anything.
This week I dealt with an issue that had been bothering me. I came right out and asked where I stood in a new relationship. I got the answer I expected and find myself back in the friend zone/alone. Good thing I have alot of projects to occupy my time and mind. I will be concentrating on the Grand Canyon and deal with the aloneness when I return.
I turned 50 this past week. Time has just flown by. I still feel like I did at 20. Workmates decorated my desk and gave me cards and a nice cactus planter. Then my x sister-in-law and brother-in-law took me out to dinner. That side of the family still speaks to me even though I am no longer married to her brother. Today after church my daughter and son-in-law are taking me out for lunch.
It is a short work week as they are giving us Friday off as well as Thursday. Hope the weather cooperates so I can get alot of yardwork done.

Getting back into my rotation and looking forward to the next project up - Cat Cushion. Hope to start stitching on that tonight while watching some tv.
I did complete my goal of walking 250 miles by 6/1. Weight loss - I lost another 2 lbs for a total of 32lbs. I am down 3 sizes in pants. I still need to lose 4lbs to reach the weight I should be at for my height. If that doesn't happen I am ok as I just want to maintain my weight.
Today I am going on a 13 mile hike with my sister. We are breaking in our gear for hiking the Grand Canyon in July. This trip has been a big motivator in my weight loss and exercising. I don't want them to look at me and say this old lady cannot hike the Grand Canyon! I will be 50 in a few weeks and I feel the best I have in years.
