My {5K}

I did it, didn't think I wanted to but after a year and a bit I decide I could and then I'd never have to do it again.  I was the fasted little fat girl out there and I did great for my first run.  There were a few minutes where I had to breathe deeply and calm down and say a prayer but as I was finishing I saw my friend Mandy cheering me on.  I heard the announcer mention that this was my first run and I sprinted to the end in my little fat girl sprint.  It was amazing, running through they said I could stop running and I even received a metal.  So cool.

So recap:  The first two miles were fairly easy keeping a 14 minute mile.  The last 1.1 mile was the kicker, I hadn't practice this part and it was set up as a double helix since that was who was sponsoring the run.  It was up down curve curve all the way til the end with the incline to the finish.

I did it, I didn't let my fears of my looks take over and I did my best.  I now want to do it again.

Congrats to you!!
I know the feeling.
The first time I did a 5k I didn't even get bling. Had no idea people even got bling. That was my motivation for doing another. lol Now, I've moved onto 10k and just completed one on the weekend and feeeling pretty accomplished myself.
You...can do whatever you set your mind to and don't let anyone make you think different. You call yourself the little fat girl which I thought was a bit disheartening but understood.
Keep at it!! You'll be amazed at how it will keep making you feel. They say it's addictive....it really is.
