Reach Out and Run 5k
I started training for a 5k run about 6 weeks ago through the Couch to 5k running program. It was really tough to stick to the plan at times (I huffed and puffed on the treadmill and outdoors)but I did it and I'm so glad I did! Last Saturday was the first 5k that I've ever completed without having to walk throughout the race.. in 32 minutes! AMAZING!
Brooke was the person who really inspired me to start training for the 5k. She started running last fall and it's really helped her get into shape and make healthy lifestyle changes.. so I jumped on the bandwagon!
We did it!! Without having to stop OR walk!
Drew didn't run so he was there to cheer us on along with Brooke's hubby Justin. Drew started running over 7 years ago and his level of fitness was so far above mine I didn't think I'd ever catch up.. BUT Watch Out Drew!! I'm chasing you now :)
