I Made It
Well I decided a couple of months ago to start running. Now mind you I have never been a runner. I ran because I had to in other sports but I did not run for the sake of running. In fact when I would see people running I would joke with my husband "I wonder what is chasing them." Well now I am one of them. I ran my first 5K this weekend and no I did not finish last. In fact I was mid pack which I thought was great considering the front 20 our so were obvious runners. My goal was to run the entire race. I didn't really care about where I finished so long as I was not dead last. Praise God for the people that were walking or walk/running. I am now addicted to running. I love that feeling of completing a race, crossing the fininsh line. I am running in another 5k race this weekend and will begin training for a mini marathon in September. I will probably run more 5Ks between now and then and may run a couple of other mini marathons after September.
