I survived my crazy back to back 5k's this weekend. I did a Girls on the Run 5k Friday night and for the first time ever I ran the entire 5k... YIPPEE! I was teary eyed as I crossed the finish line. (And I didn't throw up or die as I had envisioned I would if I ever ran a whole 5k) I usually run about half of it then do a run/walk the rest of the way...but I was determined. Once I pushed through mile two I knew I had to do it. I set a new personal record for me, although still not under 30 minutes yet, but I am very happy with my race results!
Then home and to bed so that I could get up at 5 am to head to my next 5k, the Go Girl Run. I wasn't sure how it would go, but I wanted be able to run the whole thing again... and I DID! So proud of myself! Two victories in a 13 hour period! Wheww! What more could a girl ask for! Bonus was as we crossed the finish line, they handed us a finishers wine glass and flowers.... so sweet!
I do have another 5k for this coming weekend and this one I am running with my daughter, I am really looking forward to it.
My big goal is I would love to run/walk/crawl a half marathon and there is one in November that I am considering, I just gotta get up the courage.
Keep on keeping on!
