My first 5k run

Before the race photo
On Sat. My husband and I ran the Loons pennant race. This was our first run. Last year we did a 5k walk and I had so much fun, I decided I wanted to run one this year. In Jan. I started using the treadmill regularly. Before the race I had not once run outside. I ended up being pretty nervous to run outside and in front of others.
My husband said he would run with me which was nice. It was so windy, but the temp. wasn't to bad.
I hoped to finish in under 40 mins. and I did. My time was 37:38.
It felt so great to finish this race. I can't wait for the next one. I'm doing the Dow run/walk June 4 and hope to finish in 35 min.

    Great job on reaching your goal of running under 40 minutes and it sounds like you're really close to accomplishing your next one.
