First 5K Milestone!

Saturday, May 04, 2013

Last weekend I attempted my first 3 mile run, I am able to do 2 no problem but had never attempted 3. My sister was with me and we got it done in 56 minutes! I was so pumped. Then today I had given up on doing the 5k I was signed up for, the weather is bad rainy and cold, until a friend said, "run in it anyway I'll do it with you". Wow! My unofficial time is 51:30! She wouldn't let me walk but instead had me march to keep my heart rate up, this raised my average speed from 3.2 mph to 3.7 mph. When we got to the finish line and I saw the time was under 56 minutes I raced for the finish line, determined to beat my previous time! I didn't account for the later start we got because we were at the back of the pack!!! I am so blessed to have friends like Allie and Melissa. They pushed me and kept me moving when I really wanted to quit!
