So I did it and I have proof! I actually completed a 5k. It was the Underwearness 5k in Denver’s City Park. It was in the evening and almost 100 degrees. I may have walked more than I planned but I did it and it felt AWESOME! That’s me coming across the line! Thanks for the pictures, Heidi!
While my time wasn’t what I planned (44:47) I finished. I didn’t cut corners and I came through the finish.
While I admit that I haven’t done a lot of mileage since finishing, I definitely plan on getting a better time the next time around. I am going to redo the last few weeks of the Couch to 5k. Now that I know what it feels like, I could definitely do it again! I’m looking at the Golden Gallup in October. It’s 5 miles instead of a 5k but I definitely think it’s doable.
I’m Wondering: Do you remember your first 5k? What was it like?
