Yesterday, I finished my first EVER 8k event! My goal was to FINISH in 3 hours (two separate goals) and I hit the finish line at 2 hours, 13 minutes and even ran the last 50 feet! I am so proud of me for ignoring the voices that said I couldn't, that I was too fat, too out of shape, I hadn't practiced enough, I had went off my diet and regained weight. The voices were wrong! I felt so strong when I crossed the finish line and all the volunteers cheered, I was sure I had tapped into some kind of super power.
Next goal to do the UPHILL (very steep hill!) 5k (possibly the 10k). Anyone have any good suggestions for training?
Gotto go dance!
