I just completed my first 5K! And you know what… I was really slow. And I couldn’t be happier! Let me explain why…
First, it was even a fluke that I had a timing chip to share my results with everyone. They accidentally had me listed as a runner instead of a walker, and only runners got timing chips. But, even of the walkers, I was nearly last by only a few seconds. I’m still so pumped. Wanna know why?
I did it.
I didn’t do it to be first. I didn’t do it to be in the middle of the pack. I did it because a year ago I never could have completed it. That’s what matters. It was really cool to get to do it for a good cause too, as the City Stadium Run is in honor of our veterans.
In two weeks, I get to be proud all over again, when I do another 5K!
Thanks for being patient with the slowdown of posts while I was training to get ready. There’s only so many hours in a day, and I needed to make sure my body was in proper shape to avoid injury. I appreciate it!
