run, run, run!

I'm super excited to link up with Curious Firsties for the Wednesday WOW!  Head over and share something super fantastic about school or home yourself!

I mentioned this time and time again this past spring and over the summer, but I'm so pumped about it, that I have to share it again.  Way back in March, I started the Couch to 5k training.  Sometime over the summer, I completed it, and kind of sort of started a 10k trainer (I've been loving running 4-5 miles at a time for the last two months, and I'm probably going to keep doing that for awhile).

The before...
BUT!  This past Saturday, I (finally) ran my first official 5k race.  If by "race," I mean run with many people--because let's be honest here.  I did the Pittsburgh Color Run--and it is neither timed nor competitive.  And it was SO MUCH FUN.  Run for fun and get colored cornstarch powder thrown at you--it was awesome.

Since this was the first time I had ever run an actual 5k in a plotted out 5k course, I was excited to time myself and track all of my stats for it.  Using the stats I had collected on myself on all of my other runs, I thought a reachable goal was to aim for running the race in 35 minutes.  I was SO EXCITED when I finished in 29 minutes 6 seconds!

And the after.


  1. That looked like fun! I love love love the tutu! Thanks for linking up!! So excited :)

    1. It was SO much fun! I was so excited about running this race that I made my tutu way back at the beginning of September. It was super easy to make!
