First 5K!

This past Saturday I knocked another thing of my 30 before 30 list and ran my first 5K! I can't lie, I'm pretty darn excited about it. I met all of my goals [1. run the whole time, no walking 2. less than a 10 minute mile pace 3. beat the ladies pushing strollers] - heck yes! The course was SUPER hilly which definitely kicked my butt but overall, I felt good and am excited for our next 5K [on flat ground] to take a little time off [I know I can do better].

to top it off, we found out later that day that I had the fastest time in my age-range [25-29]... whaat?!

also, my super impressive husband was 3rd in his age range and oh yeah, 9th overall...
yup, he's a rockstar.

I'm so excited to have knocked something off my 30 before 30 bucket list and to start training for a 10K next!  I never thought I would run a 10K but DJ has been so supportive and encouraging. He keeps telling me that I'm in better shape than I think I'm in and could run one tomorrow if I wanted [he must be nuts]. Seriously though, the fact that he thinks I can do it really does makes me work harder and want to get better and stronger!
