I Did It

I took Automattic’s Worldwide WordPress 5k Challenge and completed it this morning. This is a virtual event and can be completed anytime during Monday, October 26th through Sunday, November 1st.

I used the Runkeeper app recommended and liked it a lot. Every five minutes the app told me my distance and pace. image

I ran my first ever 5k in April and I’ve increaed my per mile pace by over a minute. Progress feels good.

Don’t mistake me for a runner. I didn’t start running until a little over a year ago and I liked it. That’s all. I’m just a middle aged wife and mother trying to stay fit and found out this is a pretty good way to do it.

I’m also starting a new Thanksgiving tradition and will run a 5k called the Turkey Trot that morning.

Who knows? A 10k might be in my future.
