1. attainment of anything desired; realization; accomplishment
2. enjoyment, as of something attained or realized
3. state of bearing fruit.
Today I “bear fruit”. I attain a thing desired. And (all things being equal) I shall enjoy that something realized.
This is what ten weeks of hot, sweaty Monday evenings after work; BCOD mornings in the dark of our subdivision; and generally (as I have said more than a couple times) “doing this thing” has all been about. Actually running a 5K.
More than anyone else I have to express my gratitude to my husband Rich for acting as my running partner/trainer/coach and general, all-around supportive and wonderful spouse. (That’s nothing new, I get that all the time! I’m spoiled like that.)
I am also deeply grateful for my friends and family who have cheered on every minor accomplishment along the way and saw this day coming long before I actually believed it was possible.
And now my dears, I’ve gotta run – literally!!
