Running my first 5K was my new years resolution and I'm glad to say this is the only time I can remember that I actually achieved my goal. We started training about 2 months ago in intervals and were up to 3 miles this weekend. I have to admit I was pretty nervous.
The morning started at 6:30 when I got up, let the dogs out, fed the dogs, fed myself and got dressed. Kelly and Katy arrived at my house not long after I woke up too. They had decided to participate in the 1 mile Puppy Path walk with Kelly's three dogs.
The race atmosphere was pretty awesome. There were definitely people that were taking it way more seriously than us but it was a totally fun experience. TONS OF DOGS TOO! Each of the dogs even got their own purple bandana.
The race started at 8 and we stepped of the finish line with the goal to just finish and not have to walk. We had 1 poop and 1 pee pee stop but besides that a total success. I didn't even feel like I was going to pass out. The course was really nice too cuz they had dog watering stations at every half mile or so. Our official time was 35:38.5 minutes for the 3.1 miles.
