I did it!
I finished my first 5k!
I wasn’t alone–I had a small group of friends join me.

I am blessed to have such wonderful people in my life who support and encourage me.

I am proud of myself!

Next race:  July, to commemorate my one-year surgery anniversary.

  1. Yessssssssss!!! Great job!! I had been waiting to see this victorious post – I’m so proud of you!!!!!! I’m trying to run my first one next weekend (5th) – keep your fingers crossed for me!!

    • You are going to be great!

      I am pretty proud of me too. I just wanted to finish. I didn’t care how long it took me as long as I finished. I did end up with a pretty good pace for being a walker–22 minutes a mile, which I thought was good considering the start was so slow. Had there not been a bunch of folks with strollers, I wouldn’t have been as slow. I also think that the fact that I’d been up since 4:45 am and the race started at 8:30 pm was a factor.

      Next time will be better–I’ll be lighter, and I sure as hell won’t have been up for 16 hours by the time the race starts!

      • YIKES – my 5K is tomorrow! I am 100% confident that I WONT run the entire thing. It finally warmed up this week, so I was running outside for the first time – WOW is it different. I could only make it a mile – my chest was burning! BUT, I’m going to do what I can and hope for the best!
