1st 5K and I didn’t die
Well, I didn’t die. I survived my first 5K. Sadly I wasn’t able to run as much as I wanted to due to a leg cramp, not to far from the start of the race.
I’ll admit there were several times I almost threw in the towel. Thankfully I didn’t, and with a last minute burst of energy I came across the finish line in a respectable time of 1hr, 2 mins and so many seconds.
Not to bad for my first race and considering the fact that I that its only been 3 months since I turned in my couch potato card and applied for my active runner one.
Has this been a fun and easy journey, no. It’s been hard and there have been time that I didn’t want to go for a walk. I’m thankful for my wife who has been my motivator, and my running/ walking pal. I also want to thank who I consider the Godmother of all us runners Maggie Mack.
My next blog I talk about the next episode of Lost that I will hopefully watch soon.
As always Keep Moving Forward
