Talking My first (inadvertant) 5 k!

I've really been working at running over the past few weeks, mostly doing walk/run intervals, and steadily increasing the amount of time I run and keeping the walk intervals at 1 min. So I headed out through the neighborhood tonight, and felt like I really pushed myself - came back feeling great. When I looked on the map to see how far I'd gone - I found out I ran 5 km! Granted, it took me 36 minutes, with 3 walk breaks, so I won't be winning medals anytime soon. Even so, it feels so good to know I can do that!
