My first 5k!!

So as you may remember, I had signed up for a "Sweethears 5k" for Feb. 13. Well I did it, and finished in 38 minutes and 42 seconds. My goal was sub 40 so I am very happy with those results!! It was cold, it was rainy, but it was a victory! And of course I enjoyed having my 'sweetheart' at my side! We are planning to do another one on April 10, and my goal is to be able to run the whole thing with no walking breaks. *Crossing fingers* It feels so good to have accomplished a goal like this! I've never been what most people consider a 'runner' but I feel like I am slowly making my way there.

Oh also for Valentines Day my hubby gave me a Nike +. He gave it to me a couple weeks early because I was too excited! Do any of YOU, our readers have one?? I would really like to have friends to add at the nike+ website!!

Mal I am soooooo proud of you and was anxiously awaiting reading your blog about it. I'm so proud that you stuck with this goal of doing the 5k, you had quite a few reasons to not do it with being sick and you just didn't take no for an answer. There is nobody in the world that I would rather have as a partner on this journey than you my dear:) Keep it up!! This is our year to reach our goals....I can just feel it, cant you?
