This time last Saturday, your friendly neighborhood Sherrie walked her first 5K.
The original plan was to walk/run, but the joints were not having it.
I arrived late and started after everyone was gone. Adele was singing her heart out in my ears and I was near tears myself. But I kept going. Besides, Charleston needed to see me repping for #TeamVegan. I had someone ask about my shirt and plant-based living, which is what I’d hoped.
And this band was my mantra. I was there to compete with the Sherrie from a few months ago. The Sherrie who wouldn’t have pushed the crowd out of her head and just walked.
But I did it! Black Girls Run Charleston, Vegan Bodybuilding and Fitness community, Official Team Green, Vegan N3rd Squad, and my Facebook fitness families and running clubs, thank you. To my family, thanks. To Sherrie from a few months ago, see what you did? We’ve got this!
On to the next one!
How do you get your fitness on? If you’re like me and not a big fan of traditional workouts, get more active in general. Play a team sport, dance, actively play with the kids and dogs, or get out and do more. Hubs and I are spending our free time on weekends going around and playing tourist. Sometimes it involves longer car rides, but we make up for the time seated with time walking around the sites. The sheer number of historic sites in Charleston makes it easy to find something to see.
We visited the Tuskegee Airmen Memorial
Charles Pinkney Site
and looked at the water for a while
We also went in search of a 4,000 year old Shell Ring, but it was getting a little late to hit this trail.
I don’t care that hubs had a flashlight. Besides, the mosquitoes were pretty fierce and hungry. We’ll go back another day.
How do you do non-traditional fitness?
Until next time, peace.
