Sunburst

I. Just. Finished. A. 5K!!

I walked nearly the whole thing, and finished in 49 minutes.  I’m so darn proud of myself :)

Next year, I’m going to try something a bit more difficult, like finishing in under 45 minutes. Or maybe a 10k.

The Sunburst is in South Bend and 5 of us from school decided to run various races.  We all finished and we all had great times (of course, everyone else beat my time-even the 10k racer-but that’s ok).

It was so awesome to watch the marathoners and half-marathoners come into the stadium at the finish line.  I was so amazed that they could run that far-26 miles and 13 miles respectively. And not a single one of them collapsed at the finish line-which is what I would have done.

We followed up our races by eating at Fiddler’s Irish Pub where I had Shepherd’s Pie for lunch.  Yum mashed potatoes!  And I followed that up with a 2 hour nap when I got home.  All in all, a very satisfying day.

  1. Congrats! Max and I did a 5k yesterday too. It was a huge feat for us to just keep going but we did it. Rested for most of the day, too tired to do anything else but I feel pretty okay today and not nearly as sore as I thought I would be.
