I am very pleased with myself for completing this race without stopping. There were a few moments where I was VERY tempted to stop for a few seconds but I didn’t. Mind over matter.
3.1 miles may seem like nothing to some people but it’s a pretty big deal for me. I could NEVER seem to do the 1 mile run in elementary, middle, and high school. I could beat all the boys in elementary school if we sprinted but I was always dead last in the mile run. When I first started running last year, I couldn’t even run 0.5 miles without stopping.
Running a 5K is still a challenge for me. I just don’t have the endurance some people are born with. It is something I want to continue with and I hope to continue to set goals for myself.
It was a lot of fun starting the race out with Morgan! Thanks to Dennis and my parents for waiting for me at the finish line. Props to the Dukes for meeting up with us for brunch afterwards.
