My first 5K race!!
Wednesday, May 19, 2010
This photo means alot to me (I'm second from the right)! It was at the Run Girlfriend Run 5 and 10K race in Sandy, Oregon. I finally made it to my goal of running a 5K!! We had SO much fun on Sunday. I made it through the C25K program with very little problems or injuries and signed myself up for a local 5K when I saw a flyer where I get my nails done. I asked my experienced runner friends to join me and they were more than happy to come. This run was to benefit the American Heart Association and even though I have nothing to compare it to, it seemed very well organized and fun. My official time was 36:34. I want to improve my time, of course, but I'm happy with it for the first one. I definitely know I need to work on running some hills. This course was NOT flat.
I already signed up for another run in June and want to make this a big part of my lifestyle. My husband even said he might join me for one now and then (he's more of a motorsports guy)!! :)
