Did my first 5k this weekend!

I did my first 5k this weekend! It was the Glow Run in Beaufort SC with my sister! I did not do as good as I could have. I tried to stay with my sister but she can't run that great and her breathing is really bad, she can't control her breathing. So she had me run with her friends DD who is 12 after the  half way point. The girl sprints and then walk and sprints and then walks so I tried to help her understand how to pace herself. But we finished in 40:12 and my sister finished in 45:00!

It was fun and I am glad I got to do my first with my sister even if I didn't stay with her!

I am ready for another one!

There is one coming up at a Zoo next month I want to do! I think I am gonna sign up for it this weekend! It is to help raise money for the tigers! And then in October I will be back in SC to run another 5k with my sister! I am so glad I did my first one and know I just want to keep doing them!!

Me!

This was after! My sister had cried because she said she sucked! I told her she didn't, you finished and that is what matters!!

Outfits were cute! Congrats on finishing. If it's your first 5K, then it's an automatic PR, and a good thing to build from. Next time, aim for under 40, maybe your sister can aim for like 43 next time, see how it goes. You have a ton of room to improve, which I think of as a good thing. Better than going out and getting a 20-minute 5K your first time and then struggling to try to PR next time. 


Congrats on finishing, both of you. I personally think you did good (my first 5K was 43 minutes I think, so you beat me)

Thanks! It was a last minute decision to do the 5k! She told me about it a week before it was to happen and I was like I will be up there to do it with you. So we had a week or less to figure out outfits! It was blast! And can't wait to do it again with her!

Congrats to you both, it takes me about 47-50 minutes currently to finish 5k so I think you were awesome! I am sure you will do better on your next one, but remember to have fun together and just get out there.

Good job! Tell your sister to be proud because not many people out there can say they've ran a 5k! That's a big accomplishment!
