My First 5K !!!


 Welcome to the Reindeer Romp! Isn't that a fun name for a run?!?
I'm excited to announce that I ran my first 5K this past weekend! It was so much fun and I met my personal goal of running the entire thing.


Before the run!

I wasn't concerned with my time but I surprised myself by running the entire 5K in a few minutes less time than I have done before in my regular routine! According to my time which started as I crossed the start line, I finished in 37:47.  According to their time which started with the gunshot, my time was 38:29. I was almost at the back of the pack to start so it took a bit for me to cross the start line. I finished about  middle of the pack.

After the run!

To run a 5K was one of my personal goals for 2009 and I am so happy to have accomplished this. For a while it didn't look like I would be able to do it, but I did! It has not been easy at all but over time I have built up some stamina and more endurance. It's exciting to look back at when I first started and to see how far I've come! God is so good!

I'm definitely planning to continue running. Don't think a marathon is part of my future at this point, but you never know!


We'd like to thank BB&T and Piedmont Medical Center for making it possible for this reindeer to romp!!!
