B Mo Survived His First 5k
I can honestly say I never thought I'd do one of these, but I think there's a chance I could be hooked.
About a month ago, I signed up for my first 5k. A bunch of my friends were doing it and I REALLY didn't want to. It was the Finish at the 50 race at Gillette Stadium. I have no idea what came over me, but I signed up for it and regretted that decision all month long.
I didn't really train too much, other than going for a couple runs around my neighborhood. I fully expected to just lay down halfway through and have to be dragged the rest of the way. To my surprise, it wasn't that bad! I actually had the best time I had since my few practice runs, and it was actually crazy fun.
There were people everywhere cheering and supporting which was cool. I high-fived a LOT of people. Finishing on the field and running across the 50-yard line in the middle of Gillette Stadium definitely helped.
Basically, I'm actually glad I did it. I'm definitely proud of my results but definitely can do better, so (I can't believe I'm going to say this) I think I want to do another one! Soon!
