I graduated in May where I ran 3.7k and promised myself that I would get to 5k within a month. And so I did, today. Yippee, yeehaw, whoopee!!!
39 minutes of snailrunning, but I did it and it wasn't too bad. I enjoyed most of it.
It was a beautiful run around a lake. Lots of other runners and dog walkers out, some fast, some slow, some young, some old, some skinny, some overweight - I really don't feel strange anymore when I run - I'm just one of them.
Some smile, some need a smile, and I had plenty of smiles to give.
My first 5 k - a day to remember
