Last Thursday I completed my first 5k in five years. I finished it in 58 minutes I think, let's round it up to one hour. There were 18,000 registered. It was a sea of people. I went with some friends from work and I have to say, it was an experience. The one person that I thought would not stick with me, ended up being the one that stuck with me until the very end. During parts of it we ran and I honestly thought I was going to pass out. But I didn't. And we did run to the finish line.
I am not there yet, but thank God I am not where I used to be!
