I DID IT! My first 5K!!!

Saturday, November 17, 2012

WHOOOOO HOOOOOOO!!! I did it!!! I crossed the finish line in 42.58 minutes. I am so happy. Slow and steady wins the race. (or places 48th, in it's age group, but whatever!) I even shed a tear or two at the finish line. I did a steady jog the whole way through. I am so proud of myself. I thought of giving up a few times over the past few months, but thanks to some good advice from friends on here, and some dedication to my goal...I DID IT! What an amazing feeling.

I can't wait to do the next one!!

    You have SO much to be proud of. Aside from jogging the whole way and finishing, that is truly a decent time for your very 1st 5K. I am so glad that this turned out to be a positive experience for you (well maybe not the WHOLE process, but at least the end :) and that you are looking towards running in more races. That is AWESOME!!!

    Congrats! you did great. This is just the beginning of your running. Bad analogy but so true; races are just as addictive as can't stop at just one.

Happy running. emoticon
