My First 5k!

Today I ran my first 5k!  And by ran I mean walked 🙂 I am many things, but “runner” is not one of them!  Hubby usually runs in a few 5k charity runs each summer, and this year he was like “why don’t we do it together?  I’ll run, you can walk”.  I had never even considered walking a 5k.  I always assumed the people I’d see walking were people that were running/walking through it.  But there were probably 100 walkers in today’s race.  It was great!  And I didn’t finish last.  Not even close to last.  I had a time of 51:30, hubby had a time of 33:59.  Woohoo!!!

The “Nate Bibaud 5k” is an annual event to raise money for Nate Bibaud’s ongoing therapy costs due to a spinal cord injury he suffered in 2010 that left him paralyzed from the chest down.
