39:23!


I DID IT!

I SURVIVED MY 5K THIS MORNING!

I RAN THE WHOLE WAY. DIDN'T WALK A SINGLE STEP!

MY LEGS ARE SORE

ACTUALLY MY LEGS ARE KILLING ME

BUT I FEEL SO GOOD!

MAKES ME SO PROUD THAT I PROVED MYSELF WRONG AND TOOK ON SOMETHING BIG JUST 3 MONTHS AFTER HAVING A BABY.

I am even more motivated to keep going with running knowing I can train only 2 days and still pull a 3K (I don't recommend that strategy by any means). My next one I plan on signing up for well in advance though.

What was my time? Well... I did it in under 40 mins! 39:23 to be exact. Sooo proud!
Here are a few shots we took before the race. The ones from after aren't exactly flattering. I was sooo red faced.  My friend Marie ran the race with me. It was so fun to have her there rooting me on and keeping me going.





In these ones you can tell we were getting bored while waiting for our race to start.

Now I need to go and take a hot bath and pop a few Tylenol for these poor legs of mine.

Oh and did you see my sweet new Zumba pants? Wait til you see the rest of my get up for my Zumba class.
