my goal of a 5K has finally been accomplished!
This Sunday I ran in a Mothers Day 5K
My dear friend Jen ran with me (and made me look bad! lol)
Please excuse the fact that I look pregnant in this picture... I had just crossed the finish line and was obviously too exhausted to remember to suck it in! Rookie mistake!
I personally have never ran a mile at one time my entire life....
on this day I ran about a mile and a half straight, walked for about 3/4 mile, and then ran the rest of the race.
My time was 41 minutes and some odd seconds... I finished in the first half of the contestants so that makes me happy!
Jen rocked it and placed 149th and finished in 26 minutes or something amazing like that. She rocks! Maybe next time I'll hang a little closer to her... yeah in about 5 years I know....
I like this picture because I remember exactly what was going through my mind. I could see the finish line, I was "running", and I knew that I was really going to finish this!
While I do not look amazing at all in this photo, and actually it doesn't even look like I'm running, I am sooo proud of myself for accomplishing this goal.
I went into this expecting to run maybe 1/2 a mile total and walk the rest, but I pushed passed my weaknesses and proved myself wrong!
I fully intend on running a few more of these this summer!
