Who has two thumbs, wakes up at 6:05 am, and runs a 5K on a Saturday morning?


(me, post race...about to get rid of my awful stink in the shower...)

That's right friends.  I finished.  Not only did I finish, but I finished WITHOUT WALKING!

(Major win in my book!)

It was fun to know 3 other girls that were running it...not that I actually ran with any of them, but it was fun before and after the race to have someone there!  :)

As for how I did...I'm pretty happy with my results.  I knew I wanted to finish under the 35 minute mark.  (That's the pace the app puts me at and I wanted to be ahead...)

I finished 3.1 miles in 31:40 min/mile.  Pace of 10:10 min/mile.

(Not too shabby from the almost 16:00 min/mile I started at the beginning of July...)

Now, onto bigger and better things.  10K is my next step....


  1. I'm just bursting with joy for you! You KILLED it!! That 10k will be a piece of cake. :)

    1. Thank you Brandi!! I hope to one day (more specifically, in January) to be as awesome as you and tackle a 1/2!!!
