I ran my second 5K on the weekend and I ran the whole thing (stopped 3 times to catch breath for a few seconds) and shaved 10min off my time! I was so happy. My cousin and I didn’t get much sleep the night before and we hadn’t been training religously so we were surprised. We’re doing more 5K this year, and aiming for a 10K next year!

I did it! I did have to walk for the 3rd kilometer but it was good! Think I’m hooked no the marathoning! 51:00 min! I think that I could have ran the whole thing, given I was up to running 4km in July…with a cold bug in August and Orientation, running went to the side…maybe a 10K next year!
My cousin and I are doing the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon in September. It’s only the 5km portion but that is a big deal to me! My cousin would be competing just a year after giving birth to her first baby. I picked up a pedometer at Walmart last week so I can see how far I run now and how far I gotta go! Being a runner and running marathons was a goal of mine, albet not one I advertised a lot. So I’m so excited to be doing this!
