my first 5k

Monday, August 01, 2011

I attempted to run my first 5K on Saturday. It didn't go too bad. I made it in 38:11...which considering I walked 3 times over the course of the 3.1 miles...I don't think that's too shabby. I am going to keep training and would love to try another one before the snow flies. When I started this, I didn't think I would actually stick with it...let alone enjoy it. But with the help of my spark friends and setting the right goals and creating that confidence...I have done it!


Thanks to all my spark would've been a lot harder without you all!

    Yay!! Congrats!! I do hope to be you in a few weeks!! I'm going to start with the virtual first, and then try to face my first one before the snow hits. Great job!!! Great inspiration!! did it feel walking on the course? Do many others do it? Does it feel weird? I'm worried that is what I will have to do as well in my first one...
