My First 5K Race

I completed my first 5K!

I completed my first 5K!

Six months ago, it was a major effort for me to walk around Target for fifteen minutes.  Today is a true testament to how much I have drastically changed my life.

Today was our annual wellness event for work, and I decided to register for the 5K event.  I never dreamed I would be walking in a 5K today.  It never occurred to me that I could walk that far in one day without feeling like I broke my entire body.

Not only did I succeed in walking 5K, but I finished in under an hour.  My official time was 57:39 with an average mile at 17:58.  Believe it or not, I could have kept going!  I didn’t want to push myself too hard though.  I am very proud of my results today.  I feel like I scaled a mountain!
