Happy Sunday y’all! Some of you guys may know this, but two goals on my fitness goals list were to 1. complete a 5k while running the entire time, and 2. to complete a 5k in under 30 minutes. These goals did not have to occur together, they just had to happen. Yesterday I participated in the Greenways 5k. Missy and the team (along with myself) shot off the starting gun and then I hopped in line and actually did the race too. The course was along one of my favorite places to run at so I was hoping to accomplish at least one goal. Well, guess what. I crossed the finish line in 30:44, barely missing my goal time, BUT I ran the whole entire time. Go me!! Also, I was second in the Athena division and 3rd in my age division. Yeah, I’m cool.
After the race, I headed downtown to stuff marathon goody bags for about six hours. I met so many wonderful people, including a fellow blogger, Kim Emert. Kim will be running her very first half this Sunday and I could not be more proud. Go Kim! Such a great day overall and could not feel more blessed. Race day is offically one week away.
