I finished C25k with this mornings run. Honestly, I'm suprised I stuck with it. I figured that when the weather got hot, I'd quit but I've switched my runs to 5am, when I can, and I finished! So proud of myself. Now I'm going to start the Bridge to 10k. I've never run further then about 4 miles and I'm so excited to start training for 10k. I can't wait to show myself that I can do it.

There is just one rule with no exceptions: Before victory comes temptation.

When you act without thinking, you don't make the decision, the decision makes you.

I finished my 4th 5k on Friday night (technically Saturday morning) it was a midnight run!!! Which I highly recommend! Without being able to read my watch all I could do was keep with the crowd and I managed to get a new PR of 28.26! Woohoo!

Finished my 5K on Sunday. Had to walk some. Didn't do any training outside. Much different running than on a treadmill. I think I would have made my 35 minute goal, but hung back and ran with my training partner. She really struggled, especially on the hills. But, we made her goal of under 45 minutes. We're registering for another in 2 weeks :)

I ran my 2nd 5K on Sunday. I did have to walk a little bit this time. The key really is training. You can't just pull a 5k out of the air and get it done.

Just got back from my first 5k! My time was 51 mins but it was an extremely hard course for a first timer a lot of steep hills most of the race was an uphill race lol not a lot of downhill ones either. But I finished it I walked a lot of it the humidity was horrible but I'm so proud of myself my kids want to go with me on my next one. I should be able to run most of the next one or all of it!

I ran my first 5k today. It was a hilly road trail. I went with the goal of running/walking it in 30 minutes or less and I did it! My official time was 29:05 and I ran the whole thing. I came in 50/233 overall and 10th in my age group. I am already looking for another race in my area. What a great experience.

I ran my second 5k this morning. This was a road and trail one. I ran better than my first 5k last fall but this was a much more difficult course. I was not prepared for the trail running at all. It really slowed me down and just messed up my pace and flow to the run. Really had a hard time getting back into once back on the road.

I have another 5k next weekend and I just drove that course this evening and it will be a very nice fairly level sweet run. Can't wait!

I ran my first 5K this morning! Took me forever and a half (52:27), and I had to walk part of it (there were two pretty long and steep hills; managed the first, but not the second). But, I did it, and I managed to not come in absolutely last (only fifth from last, hah!).

So, now it's time to work on my speed!

I ran my first 5K this morning, in a local amusement park! It was the toughest it's ever been (don't know why), and I struggled to finish, but my husband encouraged me and I got a time of 27:46, my best ever!

I ran my first 5K in Ottawa this past weekend. OMG – what an experience! My time was 38:41.7. Lots of room for improvement. I have one week left of C25K and then I think I will move on to B210K. It’s amazing what can be accomplished in 2 months time!

I finished my first 5K today (after completing the program a second time due to an injury). I'm happy I was able to beat my time from last year - not by much, but it was better! That's motivating to me!

I ran my first 5k on Saturday, it was an adventure mud race, so there were 14 obstacles throughout the race - I finished in 50:30. I want to shave some time off of that next time, and work more on running, and upper body strength for the obstacles!

Saturday I did my first 5k. My time was 34:51. In my training, I was never that fast! I'm super pumped and ready to look for another 5k to run to improve my time even more. My goal for this race was just to run the entire 5k which I did - having a time I can be proud of was just a bonus! Thanks for all the support!

Hi!

I just wanted to post here. While I'm new, I did finish a 5K on Saturday. I walked it, which took forever. I joined to get an idea on how to start being more of a runner then a 20 minute mile walker.
