Default Mini Goal - Run a 10K - Accomplished!

Hello Chickies!

I ran my 1st 10K this weekend and as always here are some pics

My Playlist - It was exactly 1h 10m, my goal was to run at or under that time

Me and my running buddy Thomas before the race

Waving to my friends who came out to cheer me on!

I did it!!!


Banana Nutella Crepes - my victory breakfast. Haven't had this in months, I think it was well deserved! And yes, that's ice cream on the crepes LOL

Wow!!!! So awesome!!!

I'm going to run a 5k in December. I hope I'm able to actually run/ jog it. I will have to do lots of training this fall.

You are such an inspiration. Congratulations! I'm pumped to be looking towards trying a 5K in the fall but you've already got me looking ahead beyond that to future 10K possibilities!
Way to go!

Great run and that is a wonderful time for your 1st 10K!!! Awesome job!

Hey, I love your shirt. What brand is it? It is very flattering (and Lord knows, I need some 'flatter')

Congratulations on an impressive accomplishment! Pretty darn nice time, too --- 10 minute miles overall! I stand so totally in awe of you folks that can run for these kind of races. And moreover, let me tell you, Daniela --- you look fabulous in those pictures!

Okay, first off, I love that playlist, I'm totally stealing it.

Second, you did such a great job on your first 10K!! I am so totally impressed, probably because I'm not a runner so I always admire the people that are. I secretly dream of being able to do even just a 5K, but I am so not good at running, lol.

But you are GREAT!! (And I agree that the green shirt is so cute, where did you get that??)
