First 5k

Last Saturday I spontaneously decided to run a 5k. The night before hubby started talking about it and decided he wanted to do it. I hadn't signed up for it because I didn't feel ready...but then hubby who has barely ran in the last year suddenly decided to do it, so that was a challenge, I had to do it. Though I did walk some of it, I finished it, and beat my previous time for 3 miles at home by almost 5 minutes. Of course hubby beat me by 3 minutes. But of course he was in some pain afterwards. That has only encouraged him to start running more. As for me, it has given me a goal of a time to beat, and to be able to run the whole thing. My internal battle with running continues and I am determined to beat it. At the very latest, I will be running another 5k in July, and I WILL run the whole thing =) I took a week off from running this last week but I am back to it tomorrow. Anything is possible when you put your mind to it. A friend told me to "just keep running". And that is what I will do!
