Huge NSV - My First 5km Run - Pics!
I can't believe it! I did it AND I survived! 15 Months ago I was 250 pounds heavier and the thought of walking even 1KM was horrifying! I was really nervous to go out and run today because I have been side lined from running due to a low heart rate issue but my doctor gave me the all clear to do it and just listen to my body and I went for it! After not running for almost 3 months I completed my 5km run today with a time of 34 minutes and 9 seconds (34:09). I practically was so overcome with emotion at the finish line I just wanted to cry! Of course many pics were taken but here is a small sampling!

So happy to see my husband and son...(that's my mom's husband in the background who ran with me and cheered me on)
