Determined to Finish

12:23 AM

Wow...I can't believe it's here so fast! There's only ONE MORE DAY until I take on my first 5k. I can't lie, I'm nervous but I'm also beyond excited. I have all of these questions running through my head like, what will it be like? What if I get cramps in my calf muscles (which has happened to me A LOT)? What if there are hills? What should I eat the morning of? What will I wear? Soooo many questions...but so much excitement. I have been walking 4 days a week now for 2 months & have gotten my 5k to under an hour, which I know isn't super fast by any means at all...but for ME, it's fabulous. It's so amazing to me that literally 3 months ago, if you would have told me that I would be walking a 5k by myself, training 4 times a week, and enjoying the feeling that working out has given me, I would have laughed. I honestly wouldn't have believed you. My life has changed so much since I started working towards this 5k. Every time I would go over a mile, I would complain & say that I was going to quit...now I'm able to comfortably walk 6 miles! This whole experience has been amazing.

When I cross that finish line on Saturday, I will have achieved the biggest fitness accomplishment of my life thus far. One of my close friends & co-worker, Rachel & I made buttons for race weekend. She's walking the half marathon, which I hope to be able to do next year. I made a button that said, "Determined to Finish" and that's my motto for the day. I bought a lightweight poncho because there's a 60% chance of rain on Saturday. Rain or shine, I will be there, ready, excited, nervous, anxious, and determined to finish!
