First 5k this Friday!!

Wednesday, July 02, 2014

I moved to soon to do a 5k in may. :( I move from Meridian right before the 5k there and Moved to WA right after a 5k here. So now I have the opportunity to do a 5k this week end. I am so excited.

I ran 99% of the time this morning for 3.14 miles in 53 min. I know, I am slow. I don't care. I am moving. I have never been excited to run before. I am focusing on the path and doing it. If I see a bunny (apparently not a rare thing here) I either stop to look or just keep going with out a second thought.

I wear a hat and sunglasses when I run, the sunglasses helps keep the wind out of my eyes so I am not shedding tears. The hat keeps the sweat out of my eyes and makes it so I am not gawlking all about. It is helping with my focus. I can't risk injury again.

Any tips for my first 5k? Let me have it.

    I have no tips for you, but Good Luck! Just this morning someone asked me to join a 5k charity run this fall, and I hemmed and hawed. Not sure I'm that brave...

    Just enjoy your first race. Relax, get enough sleep, use the bathroom early before the race and have fun. You'll be getting a baseline time that you can use to see where you are at in the future!

    Good luck on your first 5k! It doesn't matter if you fast or slow only matter is that you finish. The only suggestion I have since the 5k is this Friday just to take it easy until then. drink plenty of water, eat carbohydrates, and stretch. You will do great! emoticon

    Just enjoy the moments of your emoticon . I tell people I made be a slow runner, but I'm a finisher. That's all that matter. We finish what we started. Have a great time on Friday.
