I DID IT!!!!

Guess who successfully ran their first 5K yesterday morning?


My time was 30.31 which meant I ran about 10 minute miles- I was very impressed by that time for my first 5K!!

I ran with two of my friends from work, one who had an issue with her foot which meant she was running a little bit behind us. But Kaitlin and I ran the entire race together which I found very motivating. It was nice because when I wanted to stop and walk she would tell me there was no chance I could stop and walk. I ran the entire time!

Since my main goal was to simply finish this race and check it off my bucket list- the experience was extremely positive- they even gave out super nice long sleeved shirts! =)
Unfortunately I had to stuff that super nice long sleeved shirt inside my fleece pocket which made me appear to weight approximately 1000 pounds in all the pictures taken!

Here's my race number:

Finishing the can kind of see me behind that guys head....

My parents came to watch too which I was so thankful for! It was so nice of them =) Kaitlin took a picture of them with me after the race so when she sends that to me I will have to share it!

Overall it was an amazing experience and I can't wait until my next race! Which will be....? To be decided =)

But guess who was waiting for me when I got home...

Have a great day everybody!!! =)
