    Congratulations! I actually posted in your thread on last minute advice and asked how it went. I'm so glad you did it and that you're feeling great. That's how everyone should feel after a race. Boast in your accomplishment. Great job!

    Way to Push - GOOD Work - Congratulations!!!!!

     

    Your 40 minute time is impressive - I did a 5k at 45:30?  something like that and that is probably fast for me.  I applaud you - your hard work and effort feels great doesn't it!?!

    Great success on your next 5k!

    Re: I did it! I finished my VERY FIRST 5K.

    YEAH!!!!  Way to go.  That is a most impressive finish for your first.  I ran my first last month and finished about 18th from last.  Our last place finisher was an 87yr old female who finished in 58 minutes.  I was so very inspired by her and want to be doing this when I'm 87!

    I was hoping there was a high five emoticon but the cool one would have to do.  Congrats on finishing your first 5K.  Enjoy it for the next couple of days and then start figuring out what 5K you want to do next.  And always remember to have fun with it.
