Today's 5k

Friday, June 18, 2010

My hometown's annual 5k was today but I had never raced it before. I've done a lot of 5k's but always sign up for the walk b/c I'm a pretty fast walker. I decided to sign up for the run to see how I'd fare since it was on my turf. Little did I know, the town's homecoming parade was directly following the 5k and people had lined up on the street as far as you could see to watch the parade but instead were watching us! The 5k held up the parade and I had more spectators than I cared for - I wished I had picked another outfit. =) Was able to see friends and family on the sidelines unexpectedly, though, and I circled back around after the race to catch up w/them. I wish every race ended in a parade that you watched w/loved ones while eating a popcicle. What a great day!!!

    How fun! I'm trying to work up the courage to do a 5K. I have a terrible fear of coming in last!!!

I'm still just maintaining my weight right now instead of losing it but I hit a big milestone (for me) today! I was able to run for a mile nonstop. I don't think I've been able to do that since grade school! I always thought I hated jogging (I actually do hate it while I'm doing it) but it was a big thrill to see the endurance I've built up. YAY!
