On Sunday, May 22 I participated in what I think has been my favorite 5K so far! The Weight Watchers Walk-It Day Challenge took place in College Park, MD at Lake Artemesia.
|so pretty - a perfect 5K around this lake!|
|The rest of the 5K took place through woods|
I was also happy with myself because I think this was the most distance I've jogged during a 5K. I have no real way of knowing that for certain, but I felt really strong that day and I felt like the running was easy for me and it was not hard for me to keep going. That almost NEVER happens.
At the finish line they greeted you with what was my very first race medal! *Tear*
Oh, and we got this AWESOME shirt for signing up for the walk:
If you're a WW member, I would highly recommend doing this walk next year! Ours was so well put together and I just loved all the people who participated.
My next and final 5K is this Saturday on the National Mall in Washington, DC. It is the Susan G. Komen Global Race for the Cure. I'm kind of excited that this will be the last 5K for awhile. I'm not currently committed to any others as of yet, but I'm going to hold off for the month of June until after we get moved and I'm done with this hell... or, I mean, school!
