Ran my first 5K

On August 15th, I ran my first 5K. It was the America's Finest City Half Marathon and 5K. I finished in 26:34. 195th out of 1600 runners!

So there I did it: From a non runner to a 5K runner within a few months. IT CAN BE DONE!

I'm glad that I kept this blog from the beginning. It's very interesting and encouraging to listen to my early posts, and how difficult it was for me to even run for 60 seconds! You can HEAR that I'm out of breath and out of shape.

Today I'm running 35 minutes, solid and strong, 3 times a week. I usually end my training runs with a strong sprint as well. A long way from where I started.

I hope that this blog and my recordings give you some encouragement that it can be done.

Next stop that I have my sights on: running another 5K and then a 10K.

    I just re-started C25K and finished Week 1 with the hopes of completing the Turkey Trot (8K) on Thanksgiving Day.
