My First 5K

Tuesday, January 27, 2015

I completed my first 5K this weekend that happened to be Color Run. I planned on training for it so I could jog most of it but I did not give myself enough time to do that and I got a really bad head cold. To be honest I really had no business participating in it because I was still pretty sick but I spent the money to do it so I was going to do it. I ran or should I say jogged a lot more of it than I really expected. So now I have completed my first one I may be addicted to competing in them. My hubby and I are going to do one together in March and we are going to jog the whole thing. So we are going to start the Couch to 5K program this coming week.

I used to tell myself that I am not a runner so I could never run but that is really further from the truth. I was telling myself that because someone once upon a time told me that I could never be a runner because my legs are too short and it took me too long to run a mile. I honestly do not know why I choose to believe what people say to me because I always prove people wrong. The negative things people say to you do not define the person you are and what you are capable of doing. I let the can't that believe in me become my fuel to do it and prove them wrong...I guess I am stubborn like that :)
