I did it!
I did it!
I really, really did it!
I finished my first 5k in over a year a half this morning!
It was … tough in some spots. I had to walk two or three times.
It was … a little disheartening to get passed and beat by a couple in their (I’m guessing) 60’s or 70’s. (It’s was also an inspiration!)
It was … a little embarrassing to see people running the route A SECOND TIME before I finished my second mile.
It was … motivating to have a friend running the whole thing beside me (thanks, Beth!).
It was … heartwarming to see a beautiful, wonderful friend and her crazy-adorable kids cheering for me at the end. (Thank you, Jessica, Adley, and Sarah! Thank you for the photo as well!)
It was … AMAZING just to be able to finish!
It was … seriously crazy to me that as soon as I left the track I started thinking about my next run!
It was a beautiful (albeit cold) day for my first 5k in 2014, and I cannot wait for the next one!
For record’s sake, today my time was 35:48. Not bad for a beginner!
