You may recall a couple of months ago that I started running. You may recall I then started a separate running blog called This Chick Will Run in order to hold myself accountable. And yesterday, I did my first 5k and had. a. BLAST.
I didn't expect to do a 5k so soon after starting running, but I felt that, symbolically, I had to do this one. It was the Coast Guard 5k in Yorktown, Virginia and both my father and husband were in the Coast Guard. I had to do this one. So I signed up for it a month ago, and with my heart in my throat, and my body a jangle of nerves, I showed up today.
