Pretty darn proud of myself!
A group of us from the library ran or walked the Gate River Run. To prepare, several of co-workers and I met Sunday afternoons to run the bridges downtown (the only elevation you can find around here). I was really nervous about running a 15K so soon after starting to run (in January) but decided the day before the race to really do it and register. My bib number was 18194. There were A LOT of people participating in the race! The elite runners finished the race in under 50 minutes. I finished in just under 2 hours. :) I felt great after the race and, while I didn’t want to run another one right away, I’m still pretty excited about running and want to sign up for a couple of 5ks over the summer and maybe even a half-marathon in the fall. I have totally been bitten by the running bug.
