So I've been running with my community ed class and on my own for the past 5 weeks--and I finally took the plunge. I signed up to run my very first 5K race.
On Halloween is a Monster Dash with full marathon, half marathon, 10 mile, 5K, and 5K-9 (run with your dog) races. I will be debuting my 'running' skills in the 5K, along with several other women from my running class.
I have been practicing and running 3 miles or more for the past week, and I am happy with my time. I'm not fast by any means, but I am constantly moving, and most importantly:
I AM DOING IT!
Not everyone has the guts and stick-to-it perseverance to do this. I'm excited. Wish me luck!
