So yes, I completed it. Did I run the entire race- no. But I ran more then I ever would of in my life if it had not been for the training I have been following in the 5K Your Way Program.

It felt wonderful to just get up and do it and not finish in the back with the walkers as I would have in the past. (not that there is anything wrong with that) I finished in 41.22 and I guess I have no where to go but down in time. I am going to continue training and improving my time and endurance. I think I am going to shoot for another 5K that is in a few weeks :)

If anyone would have told me 2 months ago that I would run in a 5K race, I would have said "Uhh, yeah Right!". So, I am giving myself a big pat on the back for my 41 minutes of success.
