I did it... I ran the first 5k of my life and totally have a PR! ok so the Pr is a little bit of a joke considering I have never run an official timed race but I finished the race in 34.43 which for me is a PR!!
It was a great race a beautiful day, and a lovely weekend! Other than sharing my bed with Itty bitty (my one year old)she made it really hard to sleep solidly, everything went great, we made it every where we needed to be in time and the kids were not too fussy!
I felt great running today, I know this is so cheesy of me but I got a little emotional in the beginning, thinking that it was not so long ago I was sitting on my couch complaining that working out and getting shape was hard and I was never going to be "one" of those people. Anyhow I was able to fight back the tears have my private sappy moment at the beginning and comfortably run the whole time! I would occasionally catch myself running much faster than I had planned and I really wanted to save my energy for the last half mile. I totally fist pumped it across the finish line!
Speaking of the last half, as I approached it...guess who was standing there? My cute little family talking about moving faster....they were adorable freezing their bums off just to wave as Mommy went by!
Needless to say it was awesome, I am addicted and I have another race next weekend! Which pretty much means,I have to go to bed now because I am exhausted from a busy weekend and we have a busy week to go! I hope everyone had a great run or race weekend looking forward to hearing about all of them!
