Run to Walk


Well, I did it!!!

I ran/walked my very first 5K this morning. I was super nervous. I cried this morning because I didn't want to be last. I didn't know if I would survive. But, I wasn't last and I did survive! I even beat my own time by 12 minutes. Now, if I can keep it up. DH's family and my good friend April also ran. We want to try and do one a month. Hopefully I can keep improving my time. And, maybe just maybe it'll help me lose weight. Why am I always needing to lose weight? Oh well. I'm just happy I made it. I even proudly wore my race shirt today!

Congratulations! Great job! Woot!

Isn't it fun to accomplish something, especially when it is your first?!

Found you through Yvonne. Don't worry. I'm not a stalker...unless you have excess chocolate.

Happy Mother's Day :)

Way to go. (I felt the same way when I ran my first 5K--just didn't want to be last)

Keep it up.
