I DID IT!!!!
I cannot even believe I did a 5K run yesterday and I ran the entire race!!! I was not even one of the last like I thought I would be. My time was 30:58. It was very hard and at times I didn't think I could continue running but I did. There were a lot of hills which made it really tough but I just endured. The last K was very hard and I had to keep playing Miley Cyrus' "The Climb" over and over. It really isn't about where I started or when I finished it is about my journey. We learn so much as we push ourselves and try to achieve goals that we never thought were possible. Those of you who know me personally know that I am NOT a runner, or better yet, I WAS not a runner. I am now. I truly enjoy it. I cannot wait to run my next race. Just hearing the sound of feet hitting the pavement, silence, and then the songs on my Ipod. It was surreal and I cannot even explain how it felt. I encourage all of you to make a goal to accomplish something you have always wanted to do but never thought possible. I bet you will be surprised at how far you get if not all the way. :)
