#9- Run A Race

If you've been following this blog at all, you've endured my accounts of the various 5K and 10K races I've done over the past couple of years. Although I've completed several of them, I've never run a race from start to finish. 

Until now!

I didn't stop to take a single walking break. I didn't stop at any of the water stations. I just kept running, all the way to the finish line! My time was 34:24. Not my best, but it was still pretty good considering all the hills on the course. 

And I'm so glad I stuck around for the awards ceremony because guess what?!? I won first place in my age division and got my first medal!!! I can't brag too much because yes, it was a small race. BUT I still beat at least two other people (lolz). 

Anyway, I'm really proud of myself for not giving up and allowing myself to walk. I know now that I can push through it and run the entire way if I only determine to do so. This was a biggie for me!

(Oh! I told myself when I set this goal that I would reward myself with a professional pedicure when I accomplished it. So I'm going to treat myself the weekend before we leave for Disney World! I can't wait!)
