My First 5K

At the beginning on the year I made a few fitness goals. One of those goals was to run a 5K. Let me first say I am NOT a runner. If you see me running you should run too because someone is chasing me. But I wanted to prove to myself that I could at least do that. I started out strong training with the Couch to 5K program. I did great and was surprised that I could actually do this! Now I didn't have any wild expectations of running a 10 minute mile, I just wanted to finish under 40 minutes. I roped two of my friends into running the St.Paddy's Day Dash and Bash. Of course the day of it was very cold and raining. I didn't mind either since I knew I would burning up.They can out run me any day but stayed with me the whole time. I finished in under 44 minutes which was more than the goal I had but I finished. I did it and do not care to ever do another!
