First 5K

Monday, May 19, 2014

Well I did it! I walked my first 5K and it felt awesome! I can honestly say though that I'm not absolutely hooked but knowing it was for three special little girls battling cancer it makes it TOTALLY worth it! I do plan on doing more 5K's but the only thing that still bugged me was even though I'm 67 lbs down I still felt like I was being looked at for being bigger even though there were women there bigger then me and some that were even smaller then me. I guess it's something I'm gonna have to work on in the meantime but for now I am very proud of my accomplishment!

    Don't worry about the onlookers, they are there for their family or to gawk. Celebrate that you have competed in a 5K and finished alive and happy.

    Congrats on your 5k, that's great! Even as much as I've lost, I still feel that everyone is looking at me. People are bigger, people are smaller, but in my mind, they're still looking at me! Lol, my dad asked me one day, "why do you think you're so important that everyone is always looking you?!?" Keep in mind he was trying to make the point that it's all in my head, and he's right. No one is looking at you or your size. Go run and walk those races and be proud of what you've done!
