Running, Running and Running Running

This weekend I ran in my first 5k.
It was so much fun. In fact I'm looking for a 5k race to do when we go on vacation!
 
I read one of Iowa Girl Eat's posts about running and how it's ok to make noise when you run.
The last about quarter mile, this guy near me was encouraging me and helped me be able to run the last bit.
I was grunting and making a lot of noise. I think it scared him. I think he thought I was about to die.
 
My goal before the race was to finish in 45 minutes. As you can see I completed it in 41 minutes and 34 seconds.
I'm so proud of that time.
 
I have friends on facebook that run marathons, and mention losing toe nails after doing one.
I had blood on my sock, so I felt like a real runner.
