Week one of my strength training didnt go as planned. The first two days were great, but then I caught a stomach bug and bed was my after work sanctuary. Thankfully I was feeling better by Today just in time for the Walk for the Cure 5k. This was the first time I've ran a 5k outside and I felt it! It was a lot of uphill and my lungs were hurting, but knowing that cancer is a grueling battle pushed me to suck it up and keep going. I found the experience to be emotional because my great grandma is a survivor and my grandma is currently fighting breast cancer. Toward the end of the race I was tired but a fellow runner told me to keep going and ran with me to the finish line. I felt great and it made staying in on a friday night to get up at the crack of dawn totally worth it!!
