My First 5k (Post Baby #3)

Oh it's been several weeks now, but yes I finally did my 5K post-baby that was originally scheduled for May.

It was a great race. My grandfather, Aunt and a few friends were out there. My cousin did the 1-mile fun run. The weather was perfect and the course was refreshing-much of it along a path through shady trees.

Of course I wasn't concerned with time, but was thinking I could make it in 39 minutes. I finished in just over 40. Talk about slow, but at least I did it.

I feel motivated and felt it was the jump start I needed since I hadn't run for 3 weeks prior. Here it is a good 3-4 weeks later and I have only ran a handful of times since. I would really like to do one more race come November and need to get my butt in gear!!

I need motivation! I need a new house with a running trail outside of it...wonder where I could find that...hmmm....

Congratulations - that's amazing. You should be proud of how hard you have worked.

I'm glad that your grandfather was there too, those races seem like a bond you two have...
