Well, as you all probably know, I ran my first 5k yesterday! I've been training since mid May, when I started a modified version of the Couch to 5k plan. (Well, technically I finished the training schedule a while ago but I didn't run a race because I was scared to go alone.)
And yesterday I finally ran a 5k!
Before I tell you about the race, though, first I have to tell you about my dreams the night before.
All weekend I'd been planning to go to bed early Sunday night. In the end, I thought I was going to have to take a sleeping pill.
But eventually I did fall asleep.
Until the middle of the night when I woke up and removed the blanket from our bed (and from on top of Pat -- yup, the one he was currently using) because I thought it had fallen into a spider web behind our desk and had spiders on it. He asked me what I was doing and claims I said nothing about spiders or webs, but I'm sure my explanation was actually very logical and coherent.
Then I dreamed that my older sister Emily ran the same race as me and finished in 25 minutes and I was ANGRY at her.
So maybe I was a little anxious about running yesterday.
Anyway. I ran. Pat was nice and came to the race to cheer me on. :)
It felt harder than my normal runs, but I think it might be because I was unfamiliar with the route and couldn't gauge how I was doing.
I finished. I ran the whole time and did not get lost, which were my two big goals. And, my other goal was to finish under 40 minutes.
I finished at 33:41.8 :)
Here's some pictures!

Have a great Tuesday, friends!
