My First 8K

Saturday I finished my first 8K (5 mile) run. And I did it in 51:31! My goal was to just finish in under an hour, so I'm really happy with that. My pace was 10:22 miles. That's a HUGE improvement over the pace I did at the 5K back in November (11:15 miles).

Yay! Next stop, a duathlon in my hometown. I'm hoping to get a bike earlier that month and hope I'm comfortable with it in time for the event. Just another 'bump' on the road to my first triathlon.

I have never run a race before but am training for my first 8k in under an hour as well! You're story is very inspiring. Good luck with your next race.
