I had been feeling sick for days before the race so I was super nervous about being too sick to even do it, but I still ran the 5k and accomplished something! Plus since it was a run/walk, I didn't come in last since there were walkers behind me! :) I also discovered that I am a slow walker (thanks to my midgety legs) because the parts I did walk, some of the walkers started passing me! So I basically had to run to stay ahead of the walkers, lol. I guess it's a good incentive to run instead of walk!
|My roommate & I staying warm in the car before the race - It was about 46 degrees that morning!|
|I was lucky #1 for the race! (Too bad I didn't finish first, lol)|
Maybe I will do another race in the future and run the entire thing... But for now, I am proud to be able to say that I participated in a 5k and lived to tell about it!
