That's right I had my first race last Saturday! It was the Sophie Run in Corvallis 5K run/walk. That's 3.1 miles... I tried to prepare for it best I could, but like I had said before I didn't get as much in as I wanted. My time I had been run/walking was 40 minutes give or take a few seconds. I was SO EXCITED WHEN I CROSSED THAT FINISH LINE AND THE CLOCK READ 36.09!! I may have finished last in my little "valley group" but I was so so proud of myself that I finished the race and didn't die when I crossed that line. ;) Over all it was such a wonderful empowering moment for me and I can't wait for my next race!!
