I did it! Can't believe I actually ran a 5k! Now I know it's not that impressive to some but competing in a race has been on my bucket list for years. I encouraged three other girls from my office to run with me and I couldn't have felt prouder when they all showed up. My goal was simple. I'm not very fast but a friend of a friend had hit 37 minutes on a previous race and my goal was to be close to that.
I was amazed when I came in at 36:59! Crazy! I couldn't believe I actually did it! The race was pretty small with just over 150 runners but I'm proud to say I did NOT come in last :)
I was so happy to see my husband as I passed the finish line.
Here we are, right before the race.
And here we are after, all dying and having a good time :)
It was fun and I hope to do more races in the future.
