NSV: Ran My First 5k!

ErinMcMom Posts: 228 Member
6 weeks ago I started using the c25k app. When I began I couldn't even run to the mailbox on my street (less than 2 minutes run). Today I ran my first 5k at Color Me Rad in Toronto! It was so much fun that I didn't want it to end and if my friends had been up to it I would have jumped back into line for the next heat and done it all again!
If you've got a colour run coming to a city near you, you should go do it. AMAZING amounts of fun!

    Nice job! It's amazing how fast people can become runners when they decide to do it. 10k next?

    Congratulations!!! My first 5K was a Color Run on my Birthday (June 29) and I enjoyed it. I am so proud of my accomplishment and ready to do another one.

    GREAT JOB!!! That is a wonderful accomplishment!

    I look forward to when I finally can say the same. The longest I have run nonstop is 2 miles. And I have never run outside, only on the treadmill and I don't know how different it will be. I am super nervous.

    Congratulations!! I'm working up to my first 5K too. I've registered for one in October, might be registering for one in September if I feel prepared... There's a color run coming to my city and I want to do it!
