I completed my first 5k!
Tuesday, June 25, 2013
Sunday was the big day and it was a blast! There was over 2000 people in the race and the weather was almost perfect. It is a beautiful seaside course, as well.
I am still very slow (44:14) but I beat my personal best time by 2 minutes! It was great standing at the finish lne cheering on the hundreds of others crossing the line after me. I know how it feels now to finally see the finish line ahead and then cross it.
I am registered to run another one on September 29. I am hooked on this sport now! As a reward for finishing my first race I am going out this week to get a new pair of properly fitted running shoes.
I am a little disappointed with how slowly the weight has been coming off so I am renewing my efforts to carefully track everything I eat. I have also been building muscle and loosing inches so I know my efforts are paying off despite the scale. It feels great to be getting fit again!
