My first 5K! I did it! I completed the whole thing. I ran the whole thing, I didn't walk, I didn't stop, I did it!! And in under my goal time of 35 minutes. I crossed the finish line in 33:24. I'm so damn proud of myself and I am SO going to do it again!

When I finished Chuck asked me what was next and my response was "I dunno. Do it again?!" It's in me. I like it and I'm going to keep running. Cause I'm a runner now.

This is my last push. Once I can see the finish line, I push it as hard as I can.

I'm so proud of myself. I'm framing my number that was pinned to my shirt with the quote "It never gets easier, you just get better."

You know it.


  1. WOW!!! this is so great. for a girl who was never going to run anywhere, anytime, you have really outdone yourself. next time I hope to be there to watch you do it. congratulations, honey!!

  2. Great job! You should be proud of yourself! I would love to have the energy and drive that you have. I was just clicking - next blog- next blog and then there you were - such a positive and inspirational blog! Thanks for sharing!

  3. I hope I am not posting twice - I posted this once and it didn't show up - sorry if it ends up a duplicate.

    Just wanted to say how inspiring you are. It is wonderful to see someone with such a positive great attitude toward life. You are a role model! Congrats on the race and keep it up!!
