Recap of my first 5K


I am sure you all saw my I Survived note, which means that I actually made it out of the 5K I was volunteered into by my husband and mother-in-law to support her in her weight loss. And just as a side note, my MIL has lost over 100 pounds since she started on Weight Watchers and I couldn’t be more proud of her, the woman is incredible.

Alright on to the recap of my little 5K Smile!!!

IMG_1330We got up bright and early at 7 am yesterday to head over to the local Weight Watchers meeting point where the walk/run would start. I really didn’t want to leave my bed, and the thought of running scared me a little. I tried to chicken out and stay in bed, but the Mister got me up, dressed me and even put my knee brace on then practically carried me down the stairs to the car.


The sun was shinning, when we got to the shop and there were lots of people there. We met up with my MIL and it seemed that she was happy we could all make it.


Most people walked, the Mister and I decided to do intervals since I really wanted to run a part of it, but knew I couldn’t continuously run the whole thing. So we weaved in and out of the crowed when we could and jogged for a bit, then walked, then jogged. We didn’t stop once, and if it was up to my dear hubby he would have ran the whole thing, but he didn’t want to leave me behind!

IMG_1332When we got back to the store and were finished with the 3.1 miles I got a big hug and a kiss from the Mister for making it without stopping and whining to much.

I have to say my sinuses were killing me, my throat was sore and my chest felt like it was burning. But I did it. I finished a 5K, next up is actually running the whole thing, or at least incorporating more running then we did this time.

After the run we all changed and headed to Village in for breakfast. Once we were done stuffing our faces, the ladies of the family went on a retail therapy session while some of the men went back to A1 Scuba for the expo and others home!

PS: The Mister won a brand new Aqualung Regulator (the same one we use) valued at $500.00 from the Expo. I would much rather have won a trip, but now we have a spare if either one of our regs decided to dye. 


  1. Congratulations! That is awesome. And even more awesome that your MIL has lost 100 lbs ... good for her!!!!!!!!


Thanks so much for stopping by!!! Leave comments, questions or suggestions! They make me smile!
