Well, I did it! I completed my first 5k run! I still can’t believe it. My whole life I have hated running, just despised it. And here I am crossing the finish line last week. I ran the 5k in just under 30 minutes and felt great. My legs were a little tired and at some points I was feeling sore but as the paint sprayed me every so often, I knew the finish line wasn’t too far away! My mom was there to snap this photo of me and she said I was about the 20th person to cross the finish line! Woo hooo.. It really feels good to see my progress and accomplish something I never thought was possible. I learned that a lot of running is mental and just telling yourself you can do it. I am mentally stronger now and love that I can push myself even harder than before!
Next up, 3.5 miles in San Francisco for the Shutterfly Corporate challenge in SF!
