Mariner Mother’s Day 5K

First off – Happy Mother’s Day to all you moms out there!! I hope your day has been spectacular and I hope you get some type of rest and relaxation 🙂

Back in January, I said I wasn’t going to make any resolutions. I swore off of them because I never stick to them. Instead, I said I was going to make monthly resolutions consisting of things I could actually accomplish. In Feb, my SIL and I decided we were going to go back to Couch To 5K and attempt to complete it. I finally did it. I must have started this program three times (probably more) and I finally finished it. It definitely wasn’t in 8 weeks, I mean, it was all I could do to work FT, be a mom FT, be a wife FT, and take online classes but I managed.

Today, I ran my first 5K ever.

This was, by far, my fastest time ever. Go figure, the only person I knew there (that was running, E and Beanie came to cheer me on) was the UPS man that delivers to my work. We didn’t run together but I’m pretty sure he beat me. Story of my life.

The course was exactly what I thought it was. It wasn’t pretty but I finished. And I’m still alive, that’s a bonus. I survived and I’m already planning the next run. I think I can honestly call myself a runner now, even if I do get out ran by old men.

The rest of the day has been a lazy one but that’s a typical sunday for us. Although I did get an awesome card from Beanie

She even got dressed up for me ;) because, you know, you can never have too many tutus on. At once. And shoes on the correct feet? Overrated!

  1. Good job on your first 5km event. Watch out they’re addictive!

    Nice choice on using the MapMyRun app. I use it also here in Australia. Currently training for a 10km event in July that I have managed to wrangle the rest of the family into.
