Butterflies... today is my first ever race day!

Saturday, May 29, 2010

This is it! My first ever race day. I finished the C25K program 2 weeks ago and can't believe how far I've come. I was scared to tell ANYONE that I was embarking on this 5k program for fear that it would be too hard and I wouldn't be able to do it... letting it just fizzle out. Now I love telling people that I graduated from the program.

Race kit pickup was Thursday night. What a rush! 39000 people entered in the Ottawa Race Weekend... marathon, 1/2 marathon, 10, 5 and 2k races. I love my (first ever) bib and my (first ever) souvenir race chip! Start time is 5pm so I think it will be a LONG day waiting for our departure for the venue!

And I can't stop smiling!

    I'm envious. This is something I have always wanted to do, but have been afraid to start! You are motivating!

    WOW that is truly awesome. I have signed up for my first 5K on October 3rd in Denver Colorado. "Run for a Cure". I am nervous and wish there was a 5K class here. CONGRADULATIONS and good luck.

    Good luck! I'm also participating in the Ottawa race weekend - I'm a walker and doing a 5km. It's my 2nd time doing a 5k, but the first time at this event. So many people!!
    I'm a little nervous! emoticon
