First 5k of the Season

Race season starts this weekend!!! (for me anyways lol)

I’m running the Strides for Mental Health 5k tomorrow.  It starts and finishes right downtown … about 10 minutes away from my house.  This was the first race I ever ran!  Not to mention my sister ran it with me… it was a blast!!


I will be running this year’s race alone as my sister is still away at college, but throughout my first year of running I met a few people and now I don't feel so alone anymore when I head to races by myself! :)

Heading into my second year of racing, it has made me look back on my first year… my “firsts”, my PR’s, lessons I’ve learned…

Let’s just say that I have learned A LOT!  Now, I’m not really one to really voice goals… I mean… I kinda sorta have them, but I dont really make them known… something about failing… and not really trying hard enough… BUT…

this year I WILL run a sub 25 5k!! 

I dont really think I’m up to that point yet, but the season is long ;)



  1. Good luck! I know you can break that 25 minute mark!

  2. Exciting! Have a great race ... and who knows, you might surprise yourself and get sub 25 on the first try! Have fun!

  3. yay for 5k! i have my first on in over 3 years in two weeks and i'm pretty excited about it. should be fun!!

  4. Hey, I didn't realize that this is the end of your first year racing! My first half was on May 1st last year too.

    Good luck in your 5k, a sub 25:00 is the perfect goal!

  5. Good luck on acheiving your goals! Im sending good weather vibes your way!!!! Have a blast!

  6. Sub-25 OMG! My goal this season is a sub 31. LOL.

  7. First, that orange looks SOOO YUMMY! I know, you're like "who cares" - sorry, just had to tell you!

    Second, sub 25- heck yeah chica!!!!! No problem - you've got this fo' sure!

    Third, I have been running/racing since the fall of 2009 and you've made an awesome point - HOW.MUCH.HAVE.WE.LEARNED! It's amazing! It's a wonder I could even get my shoes on back then!!! HA!

    Fourth - kick butt in this weekends race, and most importantly, have a great time!!!!!!!!!!!!! It's about having fun first and foremost! Good luck, girl!

    Fifth - try to avoid a mental breakdown during this run - bad advertising!
