Healthy News: Team Leah Bean Rett 5K 2016

Last year I was able to walk a 5K to help raise money for Rett Syndrome research while we were on vacation  at Virginia Beach.  The Boardwalk was a wonderful place to make this happen.

This year it was too windy to do it on the Boardwalk, so I did it here at home.  I am happy to report that I managed to walk a 5K on Monday.  In fact, I used the MapMyFitness app on the cell phone I carry for emergencies and I actually walked 3.5 miles! Yay!  So good.

Having walked 5K I can proudly wear this shirt, which was my small donation to the Rett Foundation.

Side Note:

When I came home from the walk I worked on putting the garden to bed for the winter. I was well on the way when I stepped into a hole in the dirt and dropped like a stone and rolled over like a hedgehog...a complete rollover.  Amazingly I did not feel hurt, picked myself up and did some more work.  After about twenty minutes the adrenaline got to me and I stopped with the gardening and went into the house and sat in my rocking chair...watching the birds at the feeder,  a very restful and relaxing thing to do.  By evening the right side of my body including neck were screaming at me but now, several days later, there is no residual pain.  Thanks, Heavenly Father!
