On Saturday I completed my first official 5K — and I had a blast. I ran in the COLOR ME RAD 5K, and, as you can see from the photo, we were doused with colorful powder and paint all along the route. It was such a perfect celebration to this Couch to 5K journey. I finished in under 38 minutes and feeling pretty good about that — especially with all the people I had to maneuver through at the beginning and along the way.
Running with me were my daughter and her boyfriend, and my parents drove 10 hours to walk in the 5K as well. So glad I was able to share this experience with family. My other daughter and wife were there to cheer on the finish and catch some pics. Great day!
Now that this goal is completed I'm looking forward to a few more 5Ks this summer.
