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.


  1. You rock my socks! This is awesome!

  2. I'm so psyched for you! That is high up on my bucket list :)

  3. That's awesome!! Congrats. I am inspired!

  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...


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment! I love reading each and every one!
