My very first race!

 

I ran my very first 5K this morning. I know 5K isn't groundbreaking but I am still pretty proud of myself. A month ago, I couldn't run a mile without stopping. This morning, it took me less than 30 minutes to finish. I am still waiting for the official results. I was surprised to find that I actually enjoyed the way it made me feel. Thanks to the whole family who got up early and came out to support me. The race was really fun. My friend and I are already looking forward to our next race on 9/11 =) Have a great Sunday, everyone!

Congratulations!

Running a 5k under 30 minutes is a great achievement. This is one of my goal of 2013 that I have yet to complete!

Woohoo! Nice job, Sydney! Don't sell yourself short, 5k is a big deal when you couldn't run a mile a month ago... which is the state that I'm in, haha. But, you give me hope now! :)
