My first 5k

My First 5k was for the Now I can Foundation.  All proceeds went to children with walking disabilities.
Before the race.
11:18 pace!
Sprinting to the Finish Line. Please ignore my face :)

 I did it! I ran my first 5k! I made a goal to do at least 12 minute miles so that would put me at about 36-37 minutes to complete. Well I finished it in 35 minutes flat! I placed 101st out of 500. I was 48th in women. I am so proud of myself that I was able to do something super hard and keep with it.  I am thankful that my friend Corinna would come run with me even though she did not train at all, what a trooper. Girl Power all the way! My next goal is a half marathon!

After the race.
