5k awesomeness.

Well, we did it.  We ran our first 5k!  The course was brutal and John pulled away from me pretty quickly but no matter, I kept on running.  There were so many times I wanted to walk, even for a few seconds, but I didn't...i actually KEPT RUNNING.  The ENTIRE TIME.

Talk about a runners high.

I actually teared up twice during the run.  Once when I realized i was actually going to finish it and again when I saw John at the finish line.  And then maybe once again when I told him I never breaked, never stopped running.

When I ran my first 5k in Jan of 2010, I wasn't really trained or prepped and I did it by myself.  I think I finished around 45 min and did a LOT of walking.  This time my goal was to finish by 38 minutes.  I don't know my official time but by my watch, I finished right around 37 min and 15 seconds.  My splits were about 10:30/11:15/11:28 i am anxious to actually run 3 miles in my neighborhood (which is very flat) to see if I am actually a bit faster.

Well, I am hooked.  And so is John.  We are planning for a 10k in April!
