Completed my first 5K

What an amazing experience! I can't believe i waited so long to take part of something like this.

On June 13 i ran my first 5K in support of Tuft Medical Center Floating Hospital and helped save lives of children. I trained for about 6 weeks with couch to 5K program, I recommend this program to anyone for it works great.  helped me to slowly worked myself to run a 5K in 6 weeks.

What an amazing accomplishment for me. The run itself was breath taking, i ran right along the harbor in Boston and the weather was pleasant. There were about 1,500 runners and walkers. Together we helped raise 256,000 for this cause.. God is good :)

I plan on doing this specific 5K run every year God willing, and next year i will run it with my 13yr daughter ... YAY







THAT WAS GREAT!!

That is awesome. I was hoping it was from Couch to 5 K program. My hubby and I started that yesterday. I'm really excited. Did you follow the guideline and only do it 3 days a week? I'm thinking about wieght training the other 2 days.
