My First 5K!
I ran my first 5K this morning! I've been training the last eight weeks for this...but about three days ago I caught a bit of a bug...coughing, stuffy nose, sore throat, the works. So I wasn't in top form this morning, but nevertheless I persevered and came in at 31:05.7 minutes!!! It was mostly downhill which really helped with my time since I haven't been able to do that well on my treadmill at no incline. I ran 3.1 miles without stopping once and while sick to boot! Very exciting and I have no shame in patting myself on the back! I'm hoping to run another one maybe this summer, but definitely next year without being sick. I may even try a 10K! I don't think I'll go beyond that, though. I don't really enjoy running and I think anything longer than 6.2 miles would just be beyond my sensibilities! So yeah me!
