I am proud to say I just completed my first official 5k race. It's been a long road of training, knee injuries, fertility issues, and then back to training again.
I've been training in 90 degree heat so you can imagine how freaked out I was when I woke up and it was 50 degrees out! I'm not used to running in the cold and my toes tend to get numb. I piled on layers and layers of clothes before we left the house, but I ended up taking most of them off before the race.
I actually wasn't as nervous as I thought I would be right before the race and it started before I was even mentally ready. All the people cheering us on was really fun and it was so cool to see people of every age running along with us.
What an accomplishment for someone who could hardly run a block less than a year ago!
