First 5K Completed..

Monday, August 11, 2008

My first goal when I joined SparkPeople was to complete a 5K. On Sat. Aug 9th I finished one!! My time was 35:55. I am okay with the time because 6 weeks ago I couldn't run 100 feet and now I can do 3.2 miles!!! I was never a "runner" before...but boy do I love it!!
I was so proud of myself when I saw the finish line in sight! My husband and 3 kids were there cheering for mom for a change instead of the other way around. My oldest daughter told me how proud she was of me...that made my day :) Hopefully, I'll inspire her and my two boys to keep active throughout their lives!
