Freeze Your Thorns Off 5k (Walk)

I sort of forgot about this!  Luckily, my bestest Amber and I got together this morning to walk and we did a 5k!  HAHA  Thank goodness!  I almost canceled on her too, but I knew I would feel 1,000 better if I got out of the house and got my booty moving.

Even better was the fact that we didn't even have to freeze any thorns off.  The day was beautiful!  I had a heavy hoodie on and I probably could have just gone with a long sleeve tshirt.  I am going to guess it was around 50 degrees while we were out.  The sun was shinning and it was just perfect.

We walked a route I have been working on for a couple weeks.  It is a perfect 5k!  Some flat and some hills (up and down).  I'll be excited when I can actually run the entire thing.  Something I am working towards, but probably need to work just a little harder at.   

Like I said though, today we walked it.  We did fairly well for 2 girls walking and complaining about the world!  (This was a much needed therapeutic walk/session.)  We completed it in 45 minutes.  

When we got back, we sat on the bed of hubby's truck and just talked.  It was so nice to be outside in the sun and relaxing with my sweet friend.  It was just what I needed.  Amber and I always seem to be on the same page with thoughts and emotions.  She is great friend to have and I am one lucky girl to have found her in a sea of Coastie Wives.  (OMG that is kinda funny...sea....hahaha)

Thanks Amber for getting me out of the house and working some of my stress off.  Exercise really does help and makes me feel better about myself, my life, and the obstacles I have to overcome.  Who would have thought?
