Okay, because I'm a tad computer illiterate, had to wait for my daughter to send my picture of the race to me before I could actually post (took her almost a month, but that's a 14 year old for you...). Doggone shame....but I digress.

I DID IT! I finished my very first 5K race! Okay, so it's really only a few miles, BUT STILL! For someone who doesn't even like to run, it was quite exciting, exhilirating, and I plan on doing it again! It was the first time EVER that I ran 2 entire miles without stopping! The last mile I walked, VERY FAST, mind you, but I did it! Granted, I went at my own pace, which meant just about everyone was passing me at breakneck speed, but that didn't deter me, and I kept it moving!

I must say, I was very happy and proud of myself on that day; I accomplished a goal. Felt so good when I passed that finish line. I can't even say I don't like running anymore. UNTIL MY NEXT RACE!

Its amazing what we can do when we want to - a mantra I always liked when running:

I know the road is long but I am strong
