Yay! I did it!! I finished my first official 5K and only walked twice for a few hundred yards and then got back going again. It was way easier than I thought it would be and actually pretty fun! I am much more confident that the next one I will do will be much easier, at least mentally.
My time for it was nothing to brag about, but the course actually ended up to be 5.7K instead of just a 5K so I felt a little less crummy about it after that. Unfortunately I left my ipod in a friends car so I have not been able to get an accurate time from it on how fast (or slow) I was. Hopefully I can get that back tonight and download the information!
