I Ran My First 5K

I did it.

I ran a 5K.

Sure, some of it was a slow jog and some of it was even just a fast walk, but I did it.

I crushed all of my practice times.  I even beat my goal time, which in all honesty I thought would be impossible because that time was seven minutes faster than my best practice time.  I dropped about nine minutes from my best practice run.  (I suppose that's one of the benefits of being a beginner, it's easy to drop lots of time!)

I'll admit, I'm a little bit proud of myself.

After finishing, with my personal cheerleader.  
By the way, I find it somewhat amusing that I did this (and that I want to run a marathon someday) because I really am a terrible runner!  It's not just that I'm on the slow side, but my form is unique.

  4. We must be crazy together because I absolutely want to race a marathon and running is very, very, very low on my list of activities to fill time...
