LR Marathon 5k

Monday, March 04, 2013

This past Saturday it was very cold and snowing but I ran in my 1st 5k race. I was AmAzInG!

My morning started off crazy...I over slept by 30 minutes, 1 of my tag ties broke, I had 3 bathroom breaks and I didn't leave at my scheduled time. I was only off schedule about 20 minutes and that was after I left I realized that I didn't have my glasses and I had to go back home. LOL

After making it to the race location I was very nervous. About 15 minutes until race time I saw 2 ladies that I knew and I figured that I would run with them. It ended up being 5 of us and after we went through the starting line it was like every woman for herself. I did try to keep up with at least one person but I ended up going on with my pace. I finished the race in 32:14 with a pace of 10.24. I beat the time that I set for myself. I'm thankful for this experience and I plan to do more 5k's as I work myself up to a 10k, a half marathon and hopefully one day a full marathon. The sky is the limit!

I have my 1st BLING!!!!

Yep -- I conquered this fear!

Day by Day, Pound by Pound!

Thanks to Leigh for encouraging me to get involved and thanks to Jennifer for helping me find the right clothes to wear because it was freezing on Saturday.

    Congrats on your first 5k!!! It's so exciting to accomplish something like that. Your time was great too, exciting that you beat the time you set for yourself. Good luck on your training toward more 5ks & beyond! In July they do the Firecracker 5k and it is a lot of fun. It was my first 5k and I did it last year. It was SO hot exact opposite of what you experienced, compared to that I was thankful for the cooler weather on Sunday for the half...although it was colder than I'd like. Congrats again!
