First 5K NSV

I have to brag and share a triumphant tale. I know many of you have ran your first 5ks already. But tonight I did my very first one. I am on a happy emotional high right now. I ran it in 40 minutes! As I saw that 2 mile marker I started to feel the emotions coming up fast and strong. Knowing I was that far and have ran most of the two had been amazing. I then continued to run. I have to be honest I did walk some of it through out, but a total of 3/4 of a mile for the whole thing.

The feeling of coming across that finish line was amazing. I threw my hands in the air and said I did it and broke down in tears. This time last year there was no way I would have been able to. I was unhealthy and heavy. This year I am healthier and still heavy but down in pounds. This has given me my renewed outlook to get the last half of the weight off that I want gone.

If I can do this anyone can! Thanks for listening!
