Saturday was the day! I can't believe that I actually jogged my first 5k. I would have said that I "ran" but it really doesn't qualify for running when I go so slow.
We started out the gates and I hung back because I knew that I would be slow.
I didn't anticipate hills and grass to hinder me as much as they did.
In fact, I went much slower than my normal "practice" times....
The intimidation that I felt when people were turned and on their way back when I was just pushing through the first mile was really rough.
I appreciated their words of encouragement, but wanted to sit down and cry at my feeling of failure.
I really didn't think that I would be so stinking slow as I was, but what do you do?
Right now I'm trying to refocus, to feel the feeling of accomplishment (as I did finish the race) and to continue moving forward to my race in September.
It can only get better from here, right?
Just a P.S. I don't think that I would have finished if I didn't have my activerainer friends pushing me along! Thanks for your long-range support!
