I finally did my first 5k!
Back in December of 2009, I said I wanted to eventually do a 5k. Yesterday was that day. It wasn't pretty, and I would have won no medals, but I DID do it. There was some running, much walking, and just a little too much heavy panting (and not in that good way), but I finished it -- AND in a fairly respectable time, considering it was my first: 43 minutes.
I wouldn't get that engraved on a plaque or anything, but I wasn't last, either.
I won't be doing another one in the next week or so, but I WOULD like to do it again. Now that I have a time to beat, I will challenge myself. And I've recently met someone who is very active and rooted me on (and was very proud of me and called me a "Warrior Queen!"), and I know if anybody can challenge me to do more and do better, he or someone like him can do it.
