My 1st 5k


Tomorrow I will be running the first 5k event that I walked last year. After completing that walk last year and after watching the biggest loser complete a whole marathon, I told myself you can do this. No you don't have to run a whole marathon but you can do a 5k. And the after race crowd and FOOD was just so great, talking with people everyone just seemed so happy. I knew I was hooked from there! From that race forward I participated in a 5k every Saturday through October, several in November and one in December 2009. January 2010 I decided to train for a half marathon and completed it in March 2010 in the worst weather conditions possible.

I am so glad I have discovered running!!
