I told myself in the middle of august I would start posting daily about something every day that makes me happy or makes my day extraordinary compared to the previous.
Day 1; Today I’m posting these pictures from sept 6 when I ran my first 5k that I actually tried to run in. Not only the hottest day of the summer with humidity making it close to 96 degrees, I did the 3.2 miles in 28 minutes 19seconds. I know I was getting tired because of the heat but I usually run hills even on the hottest days of august so I knew it was something I needed to get my mind into. Every time I saw an older person in front of me… Namely with grey hair I would sprint past them because after all if they could do it, why couldn’t I?
Much to my surprise I actually places fifth in my age group for women which was a nice way to end the event!
I loved the excitement of running with a group and have already signed up for a race next month.
It’s hard not to think of where I came from, how I found an enjoyment of running. My mile time in high school was anywhere from 14-16 minutes as I mostly walked. Now I aim for 8:30-9 minute miles and I know it will only improve over time as I have been focusing on endurance. 10k up next :)
