My first 5K

Friday, May 24, 2013

I signed up for my first 5K today. I haven't been nervous about it until the moment I hit accept on my credit card payment part. My friend and I have discussed it in detail and we are going to just walk the 5k. I know that my body is not ready for me to start running yet.

Other than that, the calories have been really good and I've been doing a great job making sure to eat my veggies every day. I'm trying to eat 4 servings of veggies and 3 servings of fruit so I can make it a really good habit.

    emoticon I did my first 5K in April with my best friend and it was a lot of fun! We mostly walked with a couple of bursts of jogging. We just talked and talked like we were out for a casual walk and it made the time go by so fast. The energy surrounding the event is very exciting and you will feel so proud of yourself when you cross the finish line!

    We have a 5km run/walk in our hometown in October, I've made it a goal to get my butt there. Being nervous is natural i think but once your out there and doing it imagine the joy you will feel and once you cross that finish line you're going to be so proud of yourself for accepting the credit card payment!! good luck and let us all know how it goes for you emoticon

    emoticon with the fruits & veggies! I'm going to sign up for the Color Run this year. I definitely understand the nervousness once that "confirmation" goes through! But hopefully it holds you accountable. Can't wait to hear about your experience when you've finished it!

    I wanted to do a 5k this summer as well. But husband's work schedule isn't going to allow it with one vehicle. I wish you luck on your first 5k. Don't forget to tell us how it goes for you when you get there.
