First 5K – Hot Chocolate Race 5/15K CHICAGO

Last Sunday, November 3rd I ran my very first 5K. It was also my sister Johana’s Birthday!

I planned not to run since I was not prepared for a 5K, but two friends insisted so much, I just couldn’t say “No”! I joined them knowing that I was not going to be able to finish 1K 😀 I never thought running a 5K was going to be so difficult.

It was tough, but a good experience and challenge. It took me approximately 45 minutes to finish it.  I wasn’t able to walk the next day, right foot swell up after I finish the race, muscular pain for almost two days….but I did it!! I did it! and can’t even believe it!

I’m so ready to run again. This time, I have promised myself that I will be prepared to run it and hopefully I finish the race in 30-25 minutes.

Here some pictures of race:
