Run your heart out!





So I finally completed my first 5k run! It was a trail race that had you running up and down hills, splashing through mud and trucking through rocks, sticks and stumps! I heard shortly before the race that it was one of the hardest running trails in the country! Thanks a lot! I had jitters like no other before I even took off!
I quickly covered those nerves with the upbeat, loud music I had prepared in a playlist on my ipod. I gave myself a mental pep talk and then took off like my life depended on it! I prayed for strength, courage and the endurance to push forward with every step!
It was an experience I'll never forget and one that I proudly finished with my amazing and inspiring friends, who took on the 15k that day!! I'm aspiring to make the run on the same trail with them one day!
I do believe I've caught the running bug!!
