This past weekend, my best friend and I ran our very first 5k race..
I was pretty nervous since we had never run together, the obvious height difference which I thought could be an issue since she would have a longer stride..
But on the day of the race, it worked out just fine. We kept a consistent pace that was comfortable for the both us and ended up being pretty compatible.
It just so happened to be one of the hottest days this whole summer. I would have liked to have done a little better because I have had better time than I did that day, but considering the heat and how nauseous I felt, I was just happy to have finished and not last! I don't know our official time but I think we finished at 36 minutes
This is honestly something I never saw myself doing but I'm in love with running. Something about completely wearing yourself out is the best form of relaxation, meeting goals and setting new ones. I have "bad runs" but it only motivates me to get out there and push myself harder. I'm always anxious to do better and slowly I am.
So thankful to have found something I love doing, thats just for me but at the same time getting to share it with my best friend. Can't wait to see how we do on the next one!
