My first 5K!

Back in January I decided I needed to start working out – but what to work toward? The Pittsburgh Marathon 5K was the perfect event. It was far enough away that I still had time to get into shape, yet manageable enough that I didn’t feel like I’d be struggling just to survive. Those marathon and half marathon runners man, I’m not sure how they do it! After months of hitting the gym (and the ‘dreadmill’) and many outdoor runs in Schenley Park once Pittsburgh decided to give us some spring, I successfully completed my first 5K in 31:13 :)

Up next is the Color Me Rad 5K in June! In the meantime I’ll be finishing up this semester, traveling to the UK and my home away from home, London (from May 8-May 18), and starting my last academic advising class before I graduate in July! Weeee!
