I Did It!!

Earlier this morning I ran, yes ran, my first 5K.  I have done 5K runs before, but have walked for most of them.  This is the first ever running 5K.  I did have to walk up one large & one small hill, but the third one I rocked.  I finished 46th out of 51 runners and 3rd out of 4 in my age group.  OK, I am not a track star, but I accomplished something today I have never done before and I am very proud myself.  Jeff did great too!  He finished 3rd in the 50 - 59 age category.  He rocks!
I decided I deserved 2 stars on my fitness calender for this accomplishment.


  1. Congratulations! That is an accomplishment! You should be very proud!

  2. You are a star in my book!! Congratulations on your first 5K! I'm glad it wasn't one of those 90 degree days like earlier in the week.
