Well, I did it. I officially signed up for my first 5k run!!
I do not claim to be a runner by any means. Honestly, running has never been fun for me at all. Exercise in general I lack. But, there is something to be said for crossing that finish line, and that will be my goal.
Only once have a signed up for a race, but I backed out. Not this time. From what everyone has told me, once you complete that first race, you are hooked.
I just have to DO IT.
So doing it I am.
I have exactly 8 weeks. With also working and going to school, I’m just going to do my best to prepare for this.
Also, I’ll be doing it alone. Just feel I need to. I know a lot of people would think of doing it with someone for the motivation. But this is personal for me, and just feel like I need to set out to do this on my own.
I’m not looking to have the best time. To be the fastest person. But just want to be able to say I did it.
“It is not measured by how fast we sprint away from the starting line. No! Victory is won by running the full race, finishing strong, and crossing the finish line.”
Happy St. Patty’s Day! Did anyone else forget their green like I did?? :(
