Thanks SW! I found it way harder to run the full 5K without my music... but I managed. I am definitely going to have to work on that before my next race. Also, I started off too strong and should have saved more energy for the last k because as it turned out, there was a hill to climb! It was really tough but very exhilarating when I crossed that finish line!

I don't know when my next race will be. I am going away to Italy for 3 weeks (leaving Saturday) and I am taking my running shoes with me but I am just not sure if I will be able to run as regularly as I do now so I might have some catching up to do when I get back. If there's another race I could do in November I will definitely sign up!

Do you have a race coming up? I remember you mentioning one.

Italy sounds like fun....
My 5k was this past Saturday and it went well and I also ran a minute faster than my last race with an overall finish 117 out of 831 participants.
I also signed up for the next 5k race on Sept. 12th.

It's so awesome to see how well you are all doing!

Rose, you have transformed yourself into a runner!! CONGRATS on your first race!! Way to go!

Kaitlin, 3 lbs lost is awesome! Keep going, you can do it!

Debbie, congrats on that pound lost!

Cassie, sorry to hear you caught a cold. Hope you are feeling better now!

Missfit, kickboxing does sound like a very hard thing to do. Kudos to you for not giving up on it!! It's all worth it!

As for myself, I'm doing ok. I'm currently lacking discipline and have come up with all sorts of excuses to not go and work out...
Ah well, it's a new day today and I'm set to go swimming this afternoon, so hopefully I can leave that phase of sluggishness behind me.
