The Nemetz sisters' first 5K

Monday, March 31, 2014

So I missed the weigh-in, but I do have a great NSV to report! Yesterday my sister (NemetzC) and I did the local Biggest Loser Walk/Run. It was our first 5k, and something we've been talking about for ages.

We did jog out with everyone out of the gate, but that was the only running we did this time through! I think the greatest part for me was that we got all the way through it together, where I know that for each of us individually there would have been reasons to just stop, turn back to the car, and go home. "Oh, sure, I signed up, I got out there...maybe next time will be right for me to finish." But we kept moving through her leg pain, and we kept going even though I had to keep pausing in the last mile for "digestive issues."

I am so proud of us, and I love that we have a benchmark now, something real to improve upon for the next time! We definitely achieved my only goal for us, which was "just don't come in last." DONE! emoticon

    Quite right!

And now that I achieved that 'jogging from the start line' high, I can be smart next time and not pull a muscle with 3 miles to go...

But it felt good, you can't deny!!!

10k next time?
