Woo Hoo! Did my first 5K today!

Saturday, April 17, 2010

I did it! I completed my first 5K today - mostly walked, did some run/walking, hadn't trained enough to run/walk the entire way, but there's always next time...!

I was pleased with my time (52:37), since my goal was to complete it in under one hour, and it was a huge rush to see my husband's proud expression when I crossed the finish line. (Also didn't hurt that the race was sponsored by Blue Bell Ice Cream, so guess what you got for free after the race - now THERE's motivation for ya!)

    Congratulations on the 5k. I can go for that motivation but don't think I would be able to do the 5k in order to do it. I would have to find something else to motivate me for the ice cream. Keep up the good work and best wishes on your next 5k. You can do it.

    Take care.
