Me, a runner???

Monday, September 17, 2012

Several months back, I started the C25K program. I had attempted it several times in the past, but I could never get past week 2 or 3 at the most. My friend/coworker also started the program and she encouraged me to sign up for the Color Run 5K. This sounded like fun to me, so I did sign up. That was the best thing I could have ever done because this gave me an actual goal to work towards. It also helped that I had someone going through it with me. The day of the race was this past Labor Day. It was pouring down rain, but thankfully that wasn't enough to cancel the race. Although we did have to walk/run the race, we were still proud of our accomplishment. It felt really great to finish a goal. Now, we are already looking to sign up for our next 5K to complete.

    That is one of the best ways to start running...having a race to look forward to. For me, my first race was not about a specific time or running the whole thing, it was just about finishing it. It gave me the sense of accomplishment, and now I love running
