My 1st Official 5K

I did it! I completed my first official 5k (at home) and didn't die! hahaha When you haven't "walked" for exercise in 3 months...jumping right on the treadmill and knocking out 3.1 miles isn't as easy as you would think. :p

At the beginning of the month, I saw that Katie was hosting her 2nd Annual Virtual 5K. I told myself I would sign up for it, but if I didn't complete it...no big deal. The day loomed closer and as I started my #onedayatatime journey, I just couldn't let myself not do it! So, I suited up and dusted off the treadmill (like you wouldn't believe how much dust was on that thing!) and plugged away at the 3.1 miles. I didn't finish it nearly as fast as I used to be able to do, but I call it at a win since my ankle never felt sturdy on the treadmill until now, since I broke my leg.


If you're looking for fitness inspiration - Katie's blog is a great one to read! I've followed her pretty much the entire time I've blogged.
