My First 5K!
Today I ran my first 5K! I participated in the Damon Runyon Race for Cancer Research at Yankee Stadium!!
I’ve been sort of training for this for a while now- I now run for at least 30 minutes around the Chelsea Piers track about three times a week. So the run actually felt okay. The hardest part was the stairs, there were a lot of them!! You are so out of breath by the time you get to the top. But, I did it!
It was very cool and very thrilling to have people along the way cheering you on and giving you water and high fives. I felt like it was my own miniature version of being at the Olympics, although I know it doesnt even compare.
I feel good about setting this goal for myself and having met it. Now, I am ready for my next one!!
Here are some pics from todays event!!
