We Did It!

Yay!  We did it!  Congratulations to all who participated in the Virtual 5k this weekend.  Some of you even went the extra mile (or 13.1 :)) and did it twice!  I am so happy to see the results and can't wait to try for another event (anyone want to think about at 10K in March?). 

When I started this 500 Mile challenge and we determined we would do a virtual 5k, I will admit I was nervous of actually running a 5k.  Why, I don't really know, I had run 2 races before.  However, I think it was the fact that it meant that I would have to keep up the running to be able to do the Virtual 5k as planned.  I am happy to say that the experience was exciting to have so many people involved, but somewhat of a non-event since I have been able to run 3.1 miles for a while now.  I am happy that it gave us a motiviating event to do together, but I am ready to go the extra mile (pun intended :)).

Also, congrats to Beth for finishing her first "half-mary"!  Your time was awesome and I was so happy to read that you had an awesome experience.  Your emotional breakdown at the end reminded me of mine at the end of running the first 5k that I had really trained for.  What an accomplishment! 

Anyone have any races coming up? 

Happy Running!

I felt the same way. I run a 5K about once a week right now. Which I guess is a sign of progress!

I'll be doing a 10K in March as part of the training program for the Mini!
