5k for united way


Hooray hooray! We finished the 5k! [it rhymes - ha!]
Okay, sorry that was a little corny.
Anyway, you may remember I mentioned here that I started to train for a half marathon. I have been running 3x week for the last few weeks. I decided to do at least a couple races before the big one.
This 5k was the first step. I have to be honest, it was harder than I thought. It probably doesn't help that I don't love running (yet) and I am not a big fan of participating in competitive running.
The more I think about it, the more I realize I am totally forcing myself to enjoy running. Some days I am successful and some days I am not. It would be so easy for me to just stop running. I am guessing that I wouldn't lose any sleep over it.
BUT I am not a quitter (i have to keep reminding myself of this). I am going to continue to push forward and I just pray that I survive. haha!

Oh and even though I didn't place in the race, I won a door prize. It was a coupon book for Chattanooga, which is pretty cool. We decided to go out to dinner to celebrate and we were able to use a coupon from the book :)
