One Mile in Flint today

Today, Aug. 25, 2016, I drove to Flint Michigan to participate in the 1 mile open race for walkers and runners. As I walked I kept thinking of the Dory song “Just keep swimming”, but changed it to “just keep walking”.

After completing the race in under 24 minutes, I now am the proud owner of a heavy “M” medal for 1 mile. I’m very proud of myself and what I can do when I set my mind to it.

Kayaking

I went kayaking at Argo Canoe Livery in Ann Arbor Michigan Friday night and then again Sunday afternoon at Hayes State Park in Onsted Michigan. It was a scary experience as I paddled and drifted on the water looking down at the rocks and weeds–thinking I would flip and because my neck and back hurt–I was using muscles I haven’t used in quite some time–I cut the paddling short. Even so, I did it and plan to go kayaking again–building my confidence each time. What have you done to build your bravery?
