Run for the Wild – 5K #2

October 12, 2011 by Darlene McC

Back before the Something New project was a glorious failure I ran a 5k.  At the time it felt like a reluctant triumph; the entire run I was forcing every step, and at the end I celebrated that I made it through without puking or passing out.

Last weekend I participated in the first Run for the Wild at Coney Island, a run to benefit endangered turtle species.  I not only took 5 minutes off my time from March, but I did totally puke after the finish.  That’s how I know I was doing it right.  There was a lot more zen in my stride this time and the training paid off.
