FINISHED THE MARATHON
I did it. I ran my marathon. Now, I am done. I never have to run again.
Funny thing, though. 5k's really aren't that hard. I wasn't even sore afterwards and I didn't feel like I was going to throw up. I didn't push myself either. Maybe this is because I train at 4,000 feet and the run was at 700 feet. Or maybe it is because 29:50 isn't exactly record speed if you know what I mean.
So, I have decided to run another 5k on the 4th of July. (Or another "marathon" as I like to call them.) I like 5k's because they sound longer than they really are.
One thing I failed to mention in my last post about running was that we did this race as part of our family reunion. This picture is only a fraction of the 77 or so of us that were there to do the race.
If you are ever looking for an event to do at your family's reunion, I highly recommend doing a 5k. Like I said, it's easy enough that everyone can participate in some way. Whether it be walking, pushing a stroller, or slowly jogging (like me!) Plus, it's very motivating to work hard to not embarrass yourself in front of your family.
