yogamom07 Stepping it up a few notches
My first 5K!!! I was very proud of that moment. It was definitely a goal that I have been working on for months. I ran the whole way!! There were close to 4000 people in the race. My time was 35:02 I didn’t start at the finish line and I didn’t know to look for the clock to see what I had to subtract of my score (this was not a timed event so I just had to look at the clock to get my time). It was a while before I could even run because of all the people. I was literaly walking and talking to my friend for the first few minutes. It was packed. I finally kept making my way through and it seemed to thin out a little. My husband and kids were watching as I crossed the finish line. My husband took this shot. It’s a little blurry. I will never wear cotton shorts again. I got the biggest wedge. It was not flattering at all. I am definitely going to work on running a longer distance along with cross training. I will be starting a strict routine when I get back from my vacation. I have two 5K runs planned for August.
