Fist 5k Charity Run – Done

I completed my first 5k (3.6 miles) charity run today.  My left leg started burning, due to shine splints after the first mile.  I ended up limping a good bit during the course and I felt nauseous after the second mile.  However, I refused to give up and I just kept moving forward.  I was determined to finish the race.

I came in last place, but I am still proud of myself.

I am ready for a nap now.   🙂



Blinking Deserves a Nap

I am still struggling with Bells Palsy, but I am starting to see improvements.  The recovery processes is going to take several more months.

I can fully close my eyelid again, so I am not taping my eye shut anymore.  However, blinking my left eye still requires a good bit of effort and concentration.  I also get fatigued easily, since my body is still trying to recover.

The other day, I told my mom I needed to take a nap.  I was exhausted, because I spent hours blinking.

My mom laughed.  She thought it was the most ridiculous sounding excuse for a nap that she ever heard.  However, she did admit in my case it was valid.
