after finishing my very first 5K run ever!
I talked about the training program Tutor Girl and I started weeks ago here and here. After debating it up until literally 12 hours before the race, I decided to join Tutor Girl and her sweet Outdoorsy Sister for the run. I am so glad I did, because the feeling of accomplishment after running over the finish line was awesome! I ran the first 2 miles straight without a break, walked about a quarter mile up the killer hill, and then finished the rest running - while I would have liked to have jogged non-stop, I am seriously proud that I did the first 2 miles without a break, and only walked the uphill section. I am already thinking of the next 5K I'd like to participate in, and I'd like to try and jog the entire thing next time - no walking break at all!
I will do a full review of the C25K program (and gush a bit about how great of a running partner Tutor Girl has been) shortly, but for now - a few photos from our 5K day!

Who has 2 thumbs and just ran longer than she ever has before? THIS GIRL!
