It's a dreary morning....and I'm glad it wasn't like this yesterday morning!
On Saturday morning I ran my first official 10k in the Hamilton Road2Hope. I ran a good strong race and was faster than expected. We ran along the beachfront in Hamilton and for me it was a lovely, reflective run. I thought back over the last year and what I have accomplished and I also thought fondly of people no longer with me.
Here are myself, Paula and Uli ( two wonderful new friends I've made through running ), and my BIL and SIL, Bob and Elaine....who started their running journey in April. All of us feeling nervous for our first 10k!
Here are Paula and I trying to keep warm before racetime...
....and so special to cross the finish line with Bob. We've known each other for 37 years and I'm sure neither of us could imagine in our wildest dreams taking on this adventure.
So, it's been nice to take some extra time this morning and look back on the race while taking some stitches in my Down the Rabbit Hole...
This is certainly the part of slow stitching that is special...the peaceful time that it gives to reflect on the goings on in my life. I will never take this for granted.
I am linking up with Kathy for Slow Sunday Stitching and with Cynthia for Oh, Scrap!.
