boom 5k!

I can finally say that I have completed a 5k!!!!!!!!


It is such an awesome feeling and I’m so glad that I did it!!!  I have already started planning for another one.  I want to do them regularly so I have something to work towards and stay motivated. 


Husband did the race with me!  He was awesome and beat his goal time he had set for himself!  I also beat my personal best time.  whoohoo!!!!


This was before the race had begun.  I had a terrible dream that I had overslept and missed the race!!! I think I went to the restroom like 5 times before the race started…..just in case! haha! 


Sleepy but excited to kick some 5k booty!


well hello there hottie! ;)


These are some of our friends that did the race with us!!! I love them! We had such a fun time….and we all went out for breakfast afterwards.



At the Village Inn (hahaha!) having our breakfast afterwards.  And wearing my shirt that I got for completing Running Club!!!!!!  I’m so proud! ;) 

It was an awesome day!  I hope you feel encouraged to start running if you have always wanted to.  It is an amazing workout for your body….and your mind!  If I did this, ANYONE can do this!  I came such a long way.  Starting out barely being able to run for 90 seconds.  ha!  YOU CAN DO IT!!!!!!!!!!! 

I plan to keep running and improving my speed and distance.  And you never know….maybe work on a 10 k.  We shall see!  ;)
