Today I ran my first 5K without stopping!!! It's technically my third 5K, so 3rd time must have been the charm! I finished in 56 minutes. I signed up for the walk, thinking that I probably wouldn't be able to jog the whole thing. But I started jogging at the start and just kept on going! I cried tears of joy at the end, I was so proud of myself! :) :) :)
In other news, the visit with the acupuncturist on Friday was very eye opening. She 'prescribed' some essential oils for me to take and recommended a new way of eating based on my blood type. I haven't started following the foods portion yet because I am still reading through all the information. But the oils she gave me seem to be helping. I really like the holistic approach to tackle all my issues because they're all related. I'm feeling really positive about making some good changes in my life. It's a welcome change to the insane week I've had.
Also, my colorguard girls came in first place at their competition yesterday! Overall, the band got 2nd place. The colorguard score is incorporated into the total score that also encompasses a percussion score, visual score, and music score (for those of you who aren't familiar). So that was very inspiring for them and for me. I just hope they will continue to push themselves and get even better because we still have a lot of work to do. It's only three weeks until the season is over!
