I did it!!! My first 10K!

annagetsfitannagetsfit Posts: 8Member Posts: 8Member
So...
I ran my first race ever this weekend! A 10K- The cooper river bridge run in Charleston, SC. It took me months and months to work myself into decent enough shape to do it, ad it was not easy, but I MADE it! Yay! Although I did have to walk during the second mile due to horrible, horrible leg cramps. And I ran the last 4 miles with completely numb feet.

...But who's counting- I DID IT!

Now if I can just apply that determination to my diet and lose 30 pounds or so...
