First Race!!!

Sunday, November 27, 2011

So I did my first race and I feel good!
Initially I wanted to do a 5k but instead did a 5 miler. Thinking that it won't be different than my regular runs(WRONG). I've run this particular park before but not the entire park and it was full of hills. But I got through it despite having a cold and all!!!
I'm not gonna lie there were so many thoughts running through my mind: what did I get myself into, I should have done a shorter one and maybe I can cheat among many other thoughts was racing through my mind. But I couldn't give up and I definitely couldn't cheat in the line (there was a lot of athletes)). I kept going and pushing.
emoticonI finished at 72:29. My goal now is to shave a lot off this next year. I'm just glad that I did it. I decided to join that runners group which I know now that I will do better. And I know that I will definitely do a shorter race 3.1. I am just excited that I accomplished it. I am realizing that nothing is impossible!! We may not finish first but the success is in the doing!!! emoticon
