I completed my first 5K today.
Notice I didn't say "I ran my first 5K today."
The day didn't start out that great. Somehow, I incorporated my first alarm into one of my dreams. So, I over slept. I barely got there in time to register and get to the start, so I didn't get a chance to warm up. Then I had ipod issues, which slowed me down. Plus, I'd forgotten to reset my play list....
I completed it. That's what I set out to do.
Initially, when I signed up, I was running for about 3 miles nonstop. Then the AP Reading and an herceptin infusion intervened. Herceptin just seems to trash my stamina.
So, I adjusted my goal to finishing in under 45 minutes, with walking included.
Then I adjusted my goal to finishing without crawling....heh....no, seriously.
But, overall, it's over. I did it. And I signed up for another one next week.
