My First 5k

I said earlier that I had started running. Today I ran my first 5k. If you had asked me 6 months ago if I could ever run for 3.1 miles I probably would have laughed in your general direction- but some how I got the bug and have set mini goals for myself.

Today was awesome because a bunch of us from my work ran.

I also had a friend run with me- which was good motivation, although I've run the course a couple of times- I've never actually run with other people- so that was a new experience and we went out WAY too hard- but we were able to recover and finish strong.

A coworker ran with his son, and it made me think about how cool it will be to run with Sunshine when she's a bit older, to do an event with her-
-either way- she was there at the end to greet me which was a prize in itself!
