Woo Hoo!

Today was my first ever 5K race (plus it was W9R3!!) and it was AWESOME! What a rush. I can't think of a better way to graduate from the program. I couldn't believe how strong I felt today - I actually came in 22 out of 33 in my age bracket (although, getting passed by the fast walker was good for a laugh!). Who knew 9+ weeks ago this is where I'd end up. What a wonderful program. I can't wait until the next 5K race and better my time!
