Congrats! I ran my first 5K in July 🙂 It was a great feeling! I’m doing another one in November and I’m hoping to convince DH to do it with me since we’ve been running together for the past few months!

Good job!!! I felt the same way during my first 5k. And I totally got passed by a speed walking man who looked like he was 100 years old! The high afterwards is great though, huh? 🙂

Congrats!! Im doing Couch to 5K right now so I can understand how hard it must have been, but what an awesome feeling of accomplishment!

Well done!!!! Great time too! I personally find it really hard running with people and clock up my weekly miles on my treadmill. The last 5K I did was for charity and I hated every minute of it – the only way I can run is to completely zone out and try not to register the fact I’m running, so extra kudos for you for doing it without an ipod!

If it helps, I once got overtaken by a golden retriever in a tutu…

Thank you for posting this.  I am running my first 5K in November.  I hope that there is a cute little hotdog to pass me up, which I am sure it will.  Great time for your first 5K, really great time at all!

Congratulations! That’s a fantastic achievement. I felt like you did when I ran my first 5k last year. Be prepared though, you might have taken up a new addiction. I LOVE running in races now.

And don’t worry, I recently ran a 10k and was passed by at least 2 speedwalkers. Ego –> busted. lol

@KristenGotMarried: Amazing job! You should be so proud of yourself for only walking for 30 seconds! No shame in that, I am just proud you started running again! I think that is the hardest part, to pick the pace back up!

I almost died when I read the hot dog part! haha!
