Did a 5K today to benefit canine cancer. Hoping to end this challenge running the whole 3.1!

Fell this morning and ruined my favorite running pants. But still got my RunBet run in. Really sweated the pace after the fall though!

RunBet is great at motivating me...took a break for a couple months and totally got off track on my exercise routine. I’m joining up again to help me get back on track!

Can’t wait to get started tomorrow. Have had too much time off running and needing some motivation to get back on track.
