..well I'm kinda new, I completed the C25K program and ran my first official 5K race today. I absolutely loved the C25K program, and I'm pretty happy about just being able to complete the race in a timely fashion thanks to that program! I'm loving running!
I felt amazing during the race, at first I was a little unsure (probably just because it was my first race) but I was able to complete the entire thing! I was definitely proud of myself, I think I'm definitely going to start seeking out other races myself.
Congrats on your first 5K! I'm just starting C25K and signed up for my first race in March 2013. I'm already nervous, but determined to complete what I start. I've never, ever been a runner but I want this so badly! Way to go!
...yeah, I totally know the feeling. I had never been a runner myself and I now love it. The program is amazing, it helped me so much! Good luck with the program, I imagine you'll get to where you love it just like I do.
