This weekend I participated in the Biggest Loser RunWalk. As a fan of the Biggest Loser show for years, I was really excited when I learned that the company I work for would be sponsoring their Run Walk event during the Kentucky Gathering at the Kentucky Horse Park. I had to participate!
I signed up for the 5K run. I hadn’t run in awhile though. I had a month to train. I started incorporating running into my exercise schedule 2 – 3 times a week. Building myself up again to that 5K distance. I noticed how much my other exercises had helped me improve my cardio which in turn improved my runs. On my practice 5K runs my time was a little over 35 minutes. Which honestly I thought was amazing since when I first began running after completing the C25K program I did a 5K in about 45 minutes.
My friend Abigail came with me and participated in the race. We had a lot of fun and the best part was it was my fastest time yet for a 5K! 33:45 for 3.1 miles! I was #18 in my age group for runners!
