I DID IT!!

I ran my 5k this past Saturday!! I beat the goal I had set for myself. I came in at 31:09 and my goal was to be in before 35 minutes. I run again this Friday in another 5k and I'm hoping to get in by 30 minutes. really hoping for under 30 but I'll start with 30 minutes!! I'm so glad I went out and did it. It was freezing cold...start of the race was 18 degrees! YIKES! I could NOT believe I was out there at 18 degree's!! I was warm other than my one hand. I begged and begged Johnathon to let me borrow ONE glove. So we each had one hand that was just frozen!! Other than that it was great. heart rate did okay. I went sky high at the end. I pushed it to hard when I seen the mat I had to cross and then seen the time was at 30 something, couldn't see the entire clock cause someone was in front of it!! UGH! I kicked it into high gear and boy did things go all spinny on me. I'm glad I crossed when I did. I was looking for something to grab onto cause I felt I was going down! I didn't and I found a fence to hold until things slowed down and Rich was with me trying to get my breathing back under control....all things are good though!!
