It was more than exhilarating to run the Fire Fly 5K, it was literally like a dream come true! After training for the past 8 weeks, I could finally see the fruits of my labor! I’m pretty sure I’ve never done anything more difficult than running in general, but I loved every minute of it! The biggest thing that I took away from this 5K was a very simple notion: I CAN do it! There is something to be said about anyone that accomplishes a goal that they have set for themselves. It creates this amazing feeling of self-worth and a healthy feeling of pride. As determined as I can be about certain things in my life, I suck at setting and achieving goals.

Two things you should know about me before you ask questions: 1. I never done this before. 2. I also am not a runner. As in… I. DONT. RUN. EVER! Nonetheless, I am very excited to do it! This is the end of week one for me. I train 3 days a week with the app C25K from Zen Labs. The other days, I’m usually in a Zumba class.
