You 5K people are my inspiration! I hope I can do that someday, too.
And you didn't even walk part of it?? Holy cow!

Congrats!

Dream as if you'll live forever, live as if you'll die tomorrow.

Every accomplishment starts with the decision to try.

Success is not final, failure is not fatal; it is the courage to continue that counts.

Motivation is what gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going.

I ran my first 5k race on Sunday, and I didn't have to walk once! I run so slowly that the people around me kept switching between walking and running, but I told myself that I couldn't stop running at all. I trained 4-5 days per week for the past 6 weeks, and I wasn't going to let myself down on race day!

I finished with an official 34:57 time. I want to keep running to get my time down to under 30, but I'm super proud of myself for now. I've idly thought of running a 5k since 2006, so Sunday was a very big day for me. :)
