I did it!!!

Just a quick update about myself. This morning, I ran in my first 5k race. I finished at 37 minutes and 29 seconds! When practicing, I would run about 40 minutes or a little more, so my goal was to do it under 40 minutes.
I have not really talked about my running on here much. I started the Couch to 5k program at the beginning of June. When I first started, I ran 5 days a week. Now I have cut down to 3 or 4 days. I have also added water aerobics, biking, walking, and yoga ball exercises to the mix.
It was such a great feeling to know that I can run 3.1 miles in one setting! I encourage you to go to www.coolrunning.com to check out their running programs if you are interested!
