Ran my first 5k on Sunday!!

Just wanted to let everyone know that is starting this program that it will make a runner out of you. I started it in Sept. and b.c of being a working Mom of 3, wife and family issues, it took me till the end of December to complete it. I have kept up with the running and completed my first official 5k race on Sunday. I placed 100 out of 190 runners and my time was 30.43 seconds. I'm super proud of myself and looking forward to the next 5k in April. Good luck!

    Excellent, a great time too. I am still working at it. My goal is to run a 5 sometime before summer. Slow going for me though, just not enough hours in the day.

    Thanks. I think the cold made me run faster than I normally would or the momentum of the crowd. It was so much fun. Once you complete the program, I highly recommend you signing up for a 5k in your area. Nothing better than crossing the finish line wih people cheering you on.
