On Finishing

On a chilly Saturday morning about two weeks ago I started the day as I never had before: I awoke early, donned my running gear and headed out to race in my first 5k. In May when I started running again race day felt so far off. But in the weeks leading up to it, I began to wonder if a summer's worth of training was enough.

Turns out it was, and I finished my first ever 5k with this lovely lady by my side.

With goal #2 complete, I'm considering what's next. I'll never run a marathon, or even a half, even though I think it would be really fun to have one of those 26.2 or 13.1 stickers on my car. But maybe a 10k...maybe.
