I ran my first ever 5K today. I drug my husband along with me. I am sure he will thank me later. I must disclose that I did not run the whole race it was very much a walk / jog sort of thing for me.
Here we are at the start. What a beautiful place. This is The Cove right on the Puget Sound.
Here I am getting psyched up for the race. I am actually very nervous here and I do things like this to calm down. I know it is weird.
This is the lineup waiting for the race to start. Can you see the signs in the distance? If you happen to run a 5-6 minute mile you go to the front. Notice how far away from those signs we are?
My parents brought the kids to the finish line to cheer us on. I cried. I am such a sap. However, this was a big accomplishment in my weight loss process. I am proud. I ran in according to my cell phone clock 54 minutes so I hit under an hour and I wasn't last. Those were my two goals.
The best part is the beer afterward.
