On Saturday, I ran my first ever 5k and I’m proud to say that I ran the entire time (that’s why the pictures are all blurry). The run was definitely a challenge because it was held in the morning when my body is always stiff and unhappy to exercise, and also because of the rainy and cold weather. I think the temperature was in the 40’s so it could have been worse, though.

I also pushed myself to go faster that day, which made it difficult as well. Despite my efforts, I finished in 500th place or thereabouts, which isn’t so great, but I’m proud I did it!

Thanks to my running partner, Charlyn, who has been a great motivator and person to talk to! Running would be so boring without you!
