My First 5K

Preparation is key.  With anything in life.  I was not prepared for the hills.  Or the heat.  But it was still so much fun and I can't wait to run in my next one.  I ran the whole thing (except for the massive hill up the reservoir) UGGGGGGGGGGGGGG!

Here's some pictures:
I finished with a humble time of 41:04.  But I'm still alive!


  1. Hooray - you did it! Congrats - Doesn't that feel good?

    Way to go!

  2. I second that HOORAAAY!!! Perseverance, girl! I would love to be able to run like that!

    Watching my children run outside always makes me feel free! I love watching them.

    I know one young lady who will be sleeping really good tonight!


  3. Humble time?! It's easily 4 days less than mike would have been.

  4. GO YOU! I am impressed! =) I just found your sweet comment on my blog and had to come comment... a 5k is on my want-to list.

    You are going so well with your running.


  19. Congratulations girl!!! I'm so proud of you.

  20. Oh girl.

    I am so proud of you. So, so proud.

    A half-marathon is in your near future. I'm serious.

    In January, I couldn't have run to my mailbox. But in May I ran a half-marathon, and I'm running another in September.

    If you want the training plan, let me know via email.

    You ROCK!

  21. Congrats!!!! I ran my very first
    5k in June with 2 of my good friends (10 weeks after #3 was born). Then last weekend Hubby & I did our first 10k! Its a great feeling, so you should be so proud of yourself!

  22. Congratulations!! What an awesome experience for you.

  23. Congratulations on your first 5K! That is quite an accomplishment!
