The first annual 5K Run and Mile Walk presented by Southern Delco Young Life, and I was there, with headband and goPro for Hedgerow at 8 a.m. May 31, 2014. The fundraiser helps send teens to Young Life camp and supports the bi-weekly meetings and activities of Young Life Clubs in Southern Delco.
First and foremorest, I have never ran a 5K, but I have to say after pulling in at 22nd--being lapped by the pros-it was not half bad. At the end, you get this warm fuzzy feeling because all the Young Life team is cheering you on and the runners who have finished the race are at the finish line cheering as well; however, I most importantly, I can check throwing water in my face off my bucketlist.
Lately, I've been looking for these sorts of events to expand my experiences and give me a life outside of Rose Valley (Hedgerow was my sponsor though). It was a good way to start the day: fresh air, long run, and video on the goPro, though now as I head into the final Saturday of Sense and Sensibility I'll admit I'm a little tired. Coffee, save me.
