Time/Pace: 31:48 (10 min pace)

Location: Diamond Lake - Montezuma, IA

Trail, road, treadmill: Paved trail

Weather: Sunny ☀

Pre run snack: Water

Post run snack: Casey's Donut [followed by a funnel cake @ the parade!] :O

*I think I need to work on this pre/post menu! :)*

Thoughts before running: I was very nervous for my first 5k & I knew going in that there were HILLS!

Thoughts while running: This is absolutely horrible..I quit..followed by this is the last time I will ever run.  I was ready to cancel next weekends race..haha!  

Thoughts after running: Okay that wasn't so bad!  If I can do that 5k I can do any 5k.  Why was I being such a baby?!

Any company while running: I knew several people there but ran on my own.

Photos: None...Adam was golfing so I didn't have anyone there to take any...it's okay...I'm sure I looked like death! :)

Don't Forget..to enter my giveaway for a RoadID..ends this Saturday!


  1. You're awesome!!!! Way to go!

  2. How awesome!!!!! You go girl!

  3. Great job!! I swear I'm not running anywhere unless someone is chasing me and I might even think about it then LOL {kidding}

  4. Yay!! Way to go!! I have the exact same thoughts while running =)

  5. That's a great time, you should be proud of yourself!

    PS - I don't like running with people, it messes up my rhythm.

  6. This format looks strangely familiar.... :) I use this form in my running blog for every single run I do, races and training. It helps me to figure out what works and what doesn't! :)

  7. Good for you!!!! Right now I can barely run 0.1 K hhaha

    Funnel cake??? I'm jealous.

  8. yay for you!! You'll be hooked for life now! It's way more fun to run with a partner though. Half the time I let them run ahead of me half way through anyway. I also get depressed when the grey haired granny passes me. But then I remember that I'm having fun and it's good for me:) Can't wait to hear about your next race. (Try eating an egg or a piece of peanut butter toast before the race next time. It will help.)

  9. Congrats on your 5k! You did awesome!
