My first 5K was a success...I finished! I ran it in 35 minutes and some odd seconds...I don't have my official placing but came in somewhere in the middle of the pack. I did come in first place out of my group of six friends I've been training with though. I came in about 8 minutes ahead of four of them and 12 minutes ahead of one of them...it's a great feeling to work hard for something and accomplish it. Now, I want to go do it again...but faster!
