TODAY WAS THE 5K!!!
Just for the purposes of remembering, I am recording my time, slow as it was, but since I started this project, it has been helpful to have everything in the same place.
I ran 3.2 miles outside today in 35m24s!!!
So...if you know me, the following story will not surprise you.
Give you 3 guesses as to what I forgot today.
If you guessed shoes, you would be correct.
We were halfway there (it's an hour drive) when I remembered. No point in going back. I was wearing my regular tennis shoes, which were quite beat up and not sufficient. Plan B was enacted so the day would not be a total loss - buy new shoes! I know, I know, that's like the worst thing you can do on a race day!! Story of my life. But I am happy to report that the shoes were similar to the ones I left back at home and really didn't cause any noticeable problems. I tried to make them one of my excuses but it just wasn't meant to be!
I can't believe I did it. I can't believe I completed my goal. I knew I wasn't going to be fast, but I am pleased. I wasn't last! I did that once already!
The best part about today was that my husband and kids did the walk, my dad ran alongside me, our friends were also running/walking...it was such a blessing to have so many people there! I know it inspires me to be a part of something social like that.
Now to find another 5K run for my goal!
