I did it!

Hello :) I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. I accomplished my first 5km this weekend and received this

They call it the chocolate run, and they weren't kidding. There were chocolate covered strawberries on the way through ( both ways!!), there were tons of treats at the end too. Fudge, truffles, croissants, chocolate covered apples,chocolate milk and more. Such a fun race!

Last year I had set a goal to lose 40 lbs. While I 'only' lost 30lbs I was still proud of my accomplishment. This year I wanted to do a 5km. I was thinking later in the year ( like October) so I could practice. However, this race came highly recommended so I signed up.

I joked that I wouldn't come in last, heck I would trip the last person so I wouldn't be (just kidding). BUT, somehow I ended up being in the group that they call 'speed chasers'. So not in the 'runners group and not in the 'walkers' group. I started off walking but as people started running past me, I was determined not to be at the end and started to jog. It didn't last long-lol. I did however finish right in the middle of that group and for me that was huge! (I'll post my time/place info once I get it)

Anywho, just thought I would share. If you are looking for a fun race, I highly recommend it!
