Okay, the title is a little misleading. I didn’t actually run. I walked for most of it, and had to spurs of jogging, but still, I finished my first 5k, and I think that’s a feat in and of itself.
My friend, Claire, and I did the Run or Dye 5k, and I guess we chose the latter, because by the ending of it, we were dying. Covered in color and hot as crap (thanks, Louisiana), we
ran walked over 3 miles in downtown Shreveport. It was fun and awful at the same time. I probably should have trained for it or something. We weren’t the only ones walking though. There were some people who even had to sit down on the sidelines because they couldn’t keep going. We weren’t one of those people, so we felt pretty good about ourselves.
We had our post
marathon 5k meal at Chick-Fil-A. Luckily, we weren’t the only ones who had this idea. There was a lady that asked to take a picture with Claire and me for their Facebook page though, so if you spot us randomly in cyber space, let us know. I was starving, so this is what I ate.
Don’t judge me.
The rest of the day was spent with Jon, who drove an hour to come support me at the run (aww). After I showered and got
all most of the color off of me, we took a nap. Yeah, we were both exhausted. Then we went to dinner at Smashburger with my sister, went to look at some apartments (exterior/location. I’m finally trying to move out, y’all), and watched The Avengers (forgot how much I loved that movie).
Have you ever ran (or walked) a 5k?
