Lessons from 900+/- of my new closest friends~We Are Happy Girls!

Today  I am A Happy Girl; pleased, content , still mildly outta shape, middle aged female. But HAPPY! 🙂 When registering for this little 3.1 miler (we call it a 5k ) back in December, I had no idea it was a Big Deal. Happy Girls go every where, do everything.   This was our debut in Central Oregon.

I also had no idea any of my real life friends were Happy as well. Planning walking and running together made it much more fun.

A few more Lessons from the Finish Starting Line of a Happy Girl  :

  • Show up; (did you know that this truly is 80% of the effort?). don’t let the intimidation of 1000 or so elite  athletes (and handsome pacers in skirts , with great  legs 🙂 ) stop you.
  • Share it (from the feelings of inadequacy, bursting lungs and exhilaration) with friends, supporters and total strangers.
  • Really Happy Girls FINISH what we START.

Things that would make this event a total rock star:

  • Tiaras and Tutus.
  • My own personal Handsome Pacer please. (ok you can have one too)
  • My own personal handsome pacer showing up in a limo with a latte.

This year Bend’s 5k~ next year….Who knows?

Until next time~Rockin It, Happily Ever After.

“When you open up~so does the world.”

Now,  December 2015 a very happy girl indeed: checking these off the Rock Star Status list:

  • My own personal Handsome Pacer please. (ok you can have one too) But NOT mine.
  • My own personal handsome pacer showing up in a limo with a latte. He does.
