I. did. it. - my first 5k!

Sunday, May 29, 2011

I haven't posted in a while because life's been...well, life. But today I did something 'blog worthy' - I finished my first 5k, I ran the whole thing and did it in 39:29!! Believe me this was not what I expected when I started training for this back at the end of January (yes January - gave me plenty of time). I did a lot of treadmill work, then in April hooked up with our local running store for a 'beginners 5k group'. This brought me to running outside - I thought I was doing pretty good until then...running outside was tough at first, and my only goal was to run the entire 5k. As the weeks went on, I thought, well, maybe I can do it in under an hour...then about a week ago I thought I could probably do it in under 45minutes..well, I did - and I'm totally proud of me! Here's a picture of me...
