I did my first 5K in 49:50. haha I ended up stepping wrong on the trail in the last half mile and hurt my back and had two mild asthma attacks... But I did it! My husband and daughter were at the finish line waiting for me. :) 

I ended up with second place! haha Second to last, that is... 

I'm just proud that I got up, dressed up, and showed up. :)

All I can do is work hard and go for a better time for the next one! :)

Good for you for going :)

Good job.  I plan on doing the color run here in Nov.  Hopefully I will be running a full 5K by then.

Congrats! Finishing the race was my goal for my first 5K. I came in last place for the runners, even some of the walkers beat me, but I was proud that I finished.
