I had butterflies all morning yesterday, which surprised me a little. I didn't think I would be so nervous about running. After all, I signed up for the race just for fun and to try something new. But the thing that was freaking me out was failing. I set two goals, to finish the 5K, and also to finish in under 30 minutes, so I was nervous I wouldn't make it. But I met both my goals, finishing in 29.25. Race results are here.

Now that my 5K is over, what's next? I started running in January, and in these past 4 months I think I only missed 3 days of running that I had scheduled. But I was very motivated because of this 5K. I have really enjoyed running, but I know if I don't set another goal, I will not be motivated enough to get out there and run.
