5K Under 30 Minutes

“I’ll take his hash browns!”

That was my response when eating with someone doing that crazy low carb diet thingy.  I knew I could never give up bread and carbs. 

Until I got a bad lab report from the doctor about 2-3 years ago.

With synergy from my wife, my diet changed, and so did my cholesterol and more importantly glucose levels.  The pounds eventually started to come off as a side effect.

If I can do that, I wonder, . . . can I still run a mile?

I hadn’t run a mile without stopping in well over 20+ years.

Over the past year, step by step, plodding along, I got to the place where I entered a true chip timed 5K race. 

27 minutes.  22 seconds.

When is the last time you did something for the first time?
