I did it! I ran part of a 5K!

Today was the Beach to Beach 5K in Marblehead.  I signed up for this race with the intention of running part of all of it.

I did it!  I now have a baseline time (47 minutes).  Considering I walked more than I ran, it can only get better from here.

I felt pumped after the race and it just felt great to finish.  I was hoping to get up to 3 minute intervals, but since I hadn’t been running as much as I hoped (or should), my intervals were still around 90 seconds.

I’ll get there though.

I am a 38 year full time working mother of one doing my best to get healthy. I had lapband surgery in November of 2010 and then had a revision to the vertical gastric sleeve in February 2012. The purpose of this blog is a therapeutic tool for me to work out my feelings and write about what is going on during this experience. If I can help others through this blog, that is just a bonus.
