This week on my #justbejourney with Daisy & June, I ran my first official 5K race. I did it in 36:55, which for not running for well over a month before I just recently began again is really good for me! My pace was 12:12 per mile, which was a vast improvement over my most recent runs.
I ran with my former Weight Watchers Leader Coach, who is a dear friend to me. Before the race I was very nervous that I wouldn’t be able to keep up with her (because she runs much longer distances than I do and has been at this longer) and that I wouldn’t be able to run and talk at the same time.
Well, guess what? I did BOTH. Woot woot! I really amazed myself. I had fun the entire time, didn’t feel like I was struggling at all, and finished well before I thought I would.
Afterward on Saturday, Tom (my fiance), Delaney (my 15-month-old daughter), and I went shopping. I was originally looking for some new shoes, but I came away with a magazine, a book, and some new Feetures socks instead.
Have any of you ever read Run Like a Mother? I was looking for something light-hearted and quick to read.
I hope y’all had a fun weekend!
