Well, I did it. I ran my first 5k ever. I started running in August when I signed up for the Learn to Run clinic at The Running Room and today I was able to run in a race. It went pretty good and I was actually able to run the whole thing without stopping for a walking break. Two months ago I could hardly run to the stopsign at the corner and now I can run 5k without stopping - it's a good feeling to accomplish that.
I was excited that this was going to be our goal race and I of course didn't even have to think about who I was running for. Go Marisa Go!!!
