So the race was on Saturday. And how did it go, you ask? FANTASTIC.
It was an amazing feeling to run the entire time and finish without feeling like it would take a month to recover! I was so proud of myself, my sister, and my mom. Running that 5k gave me such a feeling of accomplishment that I can't wait to run another one.
Finding out that I actually don't hate running is exciting because it's a new way to exercise that I can do anywhere and it makes me feel awesome. I've realized that over the summer it's hard to maintain a constant exercise and healthy eating routine. Maybe not for everyone, but traveling as much as I do has made it really difficult!
But thank goodness after this weekend I'll be home for the rest of the summer with almost a month to get back on track for school. You can bet I'll be running around town and at the Y every chance I get! :) In training for my next 5k.
