Hey everyone, hope you're well!

Was pretty excited. I've been training with my local run store (Fleet Feet) for a half marathon on March 4. Since I've been training, I've also signed up for a 2nd half on April 22 at Disney

I went from doing the couch to 5k app barely able to run 5 minutes to doing 3 miles and wanting to die, around July I think?

Now I'm banging out 5k's 4 times a week or further distances!

Did a 5k last Saturday and got 2nd in my age group :) (there were only 3 people, but still, I beat one person!)

My time was 28:36 which is pretty good, but my PR was on Thanksgiving day when I did 27:41!

I've really taken a liking to running, and completely stopped hitting the gym for weights which was my old favorite

Doing a 10k this weekend which will be my furthest distance run (so far is 5.05 miles, this is 6.2).

Stay blessed.

CONGRATS!!! My fave shirt says "Winners cross the START line"...

My first 1/2 marathon was at Disneyworld, in 2009. It remains my all time FAVORITE. All with ALL things Disney, they KNOW how to put on a production!!!
