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.
