I got a medal!

Saturday I participated in Oslo Marathon, where I ran the three kilometer run. It was hard -VERY hard! A lot of the other people both walked and ran, but not me! My goal was to complete in style, no walking for this chic. It was harder than the testrun two days earlier, my pulse was over 183 when I crossed the goal line. (You want to throw up when your pulse is that high). But then again, I ran faster this time, and my coach was very pleased with my effort.

Check out my pretty medal!

This is not my last run, this is just the beginning. I am running the five kilometer in another race for women in three weeks, and 10 km the weekend after. I have ordered the book "Run your own marathon" by Grete Waitz, and that is just what I will do. Within two years my goal is to run a marathon! I love the concept of running. It is great for weight control, easy when you get the hang of it, and it is fun! (Believe it or not). I do not compete against others, I compete against myself and my negative thinking.

Naturally I will not quit quilting :)

Have fun sewing!
