My First 5K!

Today my friend Amy and I ran in our first 5K - Run for the King at Smith Park in Jackson! I must admit that I was a bit nervous, especially since I have not trained outside. Not to mention, my training came to a hault on Tuesday bc of my crazy work week. Either way, we rose early and headed downtown to run!
A 5K is 3.2 miles, so we set a personal goal to finish in under 35 minutes. It was more challenging than I imagined - I had not really thought about hills or an unsure route or my old tennis shoes. But I was so proud to finish in 31 minutes and 30 seconds. Yay!
I am already looking forward to my next 5K. My new goal will be 30 minutes!
