My First 5K

Hello everyone, I’m really sorry I haven’t been posting! I’ve been busy with school work and working out. My last post was about my ambitions and one of them was to run a 5K.

Now a lot of people that know me know how much I detest running! I’m always out of breath, I always stop and take breaks and I end up quitting. It is true, I am not a runner but this is why it is one of my ambitions to become a runner. Believe it or not I actually like running now, I have learned how to control my breathing and pace myself so it’s not so much of a chore anymore.

I’ve been researching many areas near me for 5ks and unfortunately some are soon! As in April 15th soon, now I still want to complete it and push myself to do it but it will be tough and I will remind myself that it is ok not to achieve my goals of getting a good time.

-Sponsored by MSU Federal Credit Union All proceeds from the Race for the Place 5K benefit MSU Safe Place, MSU's on-campus domestic violence shelter and advocacy services provider.
