Yesterday I attended my first 5k and I had a blast! I walked/jogged it. It took me 61 minutes to complete. It felt so good when I came to the finish line. I felt like, "hey...I can do this!" There was music and so much fun! I am definitely motivated to do another one. My family had lots of fun also.
There were all kinds of people there...just about every fitness level. Kids in strollers being pushed while their parents jogged, pregnant women, kids, teens, etc. This elderly woman flew jogging right past me. She was awesome! I want to be like that! She was inspiring. I wish I could have gotten her name, but I couldn't catch up to her. The atmosphere was super friendly. Not everyone jogged. Many people just walked at a fast pace. We talked with so many people. Everyone there had the same agenda...to have FUN!
I meet up with Nikki (Starlight615) who I meet here on SP. She has been so good to me. She motivated me and gave me tips. It was awesome. I was so glad that we were able to meet up in that sea of people. She definitely motivated me.
If anyone is thinking of doing a 5K, I would highly recommend it! It was worth it! I am ready to sign up for another one.
It was a pleasure meeting you and your family Inez! I am so proud of you for completing your 1st 5k!! Its an amazing feeling to say I can and did finish this!! I look forward to watching you complete other 1st!!! 2538 days ago
