My Year To Thrive

"My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style." ~Maya Angelou

PHP 5K & Fun Run

If I make this one, it’ll be my first actual race.  I’ve done a few virtual races, & I signed up for a local 5K last year, but was sick the day of & didn’t feel like driving 45mins to run 3mi & drive back home.  This one is a little closer, just 30mins away, & it doesn’t involve driving up a mountain.  If no one else registers in my age division, I’ll only have to trip a few people to place in the top 3.  I’m really excited, but I have to figure out how to do it with arousing suspicion.  I’m also excited because the race is along a nice area on the Tennessee River.

The race raises money for the local Christmas charities, & has become their largest single source of donations.  Interestingly, it was founded by the then CEO of a local company headquartered in Germany & so there is a sister race held at the same time in Obernburg, Germany.
