I did it!

It’s official. I’m a runner. I finished my first 10K! It was an amazing weekend filled with great food (it was at Disney after all.)

There were characters at every mile and that was fun to see. I didn’t actually stop, though, until after the 5 mile mark because I knew that once I made it that far, I was almost done.

My official time: 1:30:35  Not bad for my first 10K.

Unfortunately, they are crazy expensive so it’ll be awhile before I can do another one. But, I’ll definitely be back for another run. In the meantime, this week, I started training for a half marathon.
