Huge accomplishment! I'm so happy for you. I can't imagine ever doing that but who knows? Hearing you and people like you make me think....maybe someday! I am jogging more and at a faster pace, but can't imagine yet doing what you're doing. You are inspiring. Please tell us how the race went. Have a fantastic time and savor your victory.

I have never been a runner and I've never really like running. Until now that is! When I first started SparkPeople about two months ago I found the Virtual 5K race page and decided to give it a try! What could it hurt? It would give me some motivation and a short term goal to work towards! I found a race in my area and my sister and I signed up. The actual race is next Saturday but I ran my own 5K today for the virtual race and got a time of 47 minutes and 25 seconds! AMAZING! I was originally running about 19 minute miles so I made it my goal to run the 5K under 50 minutes and I did it! This was my biggest WooHoo moment so far and I know I will feel great next Saturday when I cross that finish line with that number on my back. I will have finished a 5K race. I love SparkPeople!
