First 5K Medal and New Photos

A couple weeks ago, I ran another 5K. This time I was on my own; my daughter had other plans. During the weeks building up to the event, I trained using the Couch to 5K (C25K) app for my smartphone and I was pleasantly surprised to earn 2nd place in my age group.

I also managed to stay on my feet the whole time… ahhh, progress!

I’ve been taking a few photography classes this month to improve my photography skills. I’ll be posting those here on the Photography page and at Georgia Adventures with Pauliana, along with stories about ¬†Unicoi State Park and the town of Helen, GA. I hope you’ll be interested in those. Here are a couple that might pique your interest.

Fog at 7:00 am on race day.

The next 5K in the series is at Fort Yargo State Park in Winder, Georgia. These trail runs are great. I love being in the woods, climbing the hills and navigating the twists and turns. Since the last race, we’ve bought a season state park pass. We have camping equipment and plan to use it in the future,

I’ll keep you posted.

I took this on the afternoon Jake killed a snake in his pen out behind our house. He was so proud of himself he had to do a couple victory laps. I love this dog.
