Guess I should say, "I did survive"!! My first 5K done and over, and I'm still ALIVE!!
Remember when I posted this about training? So, um, well...turns out that that was the only training I did. Yeah, I know, crazy and, possibly, even stupid. When I committed to running it with my girlfriends (oh, what, 8 weeks ago or more!!) I had plenty of time to get in shape and train for it...but, alas, my ambition and will power (or lack thereof) kicked me in the rear (or, ah, actually, didn't kick me in the rear) and I would think..."Monday. Yes, I'll start training on Monday." Well, somehow, Monday always came and went. But, my stubbornness refused to let me back down. "I will run this race, even if it kills me!" And I did!! Finished in 37 minutes (yes, yes, I know that is more than a twelve minute mile...you don't need to remind me!)...but I did it!! And I finished, and I even did a little celebrating last night for my 10 year college reunion. Not too shabby (again, if a little stupid) if I do say so myself!
Question is: Was it fun? Um, the jury's still out on that one. Ask me tomorrow (when the pain sets in), I'll probably tell you no...but for now, it's just maybe. And maybe, just maybe, I'll even do it again! 'Cept I'll be a smidge wiser next time!
