Two years ago today was my very first 5K race. That race that was party of my training program fo the impending *big* 12K race in September 2006 ~ and was also the race that set me on the path of wanting to become a runner!
I am still on that very same path ~ only my sights are set a little higher these days ;)
In two years, I have completed 2- 5K races (weird, huh? It's obviously not my favorite distance); one 2M; one 4.2M; one 12K, and 3- half marathons.
Apparently, I'm not quite the experienced racer that I sometimes think I am!! Only two 5K's???? I gotta get moving :) And somebody find me a good 10K!!!!!
I still have my 5K race tshirt, and very first pair of running shoes tucked up on a shelf in my closet. I attribute those items to getting me off the couch and on to the pavement. My hope is to have many more races to brag about by the time my next anniversary comes around!
