I did my first 5k this weekend. It was the Color Vibe, which benefited Harvest Hope here in Greenville. It was PHENOMINAL!
I started training at the beginning of August, and boy was it hardwork. I’ve been trying to get back into a routine of working out and figured if I had a goal, it would be a bit of motivation.
The run wasn’t as bad as I thought. There was a big hill in the beginning but after that it wasn’t too bad. I did have a running partner though, Miss Boss. She’s not really my boss, just a coworker. She did a mix of running and walking. I’m kind of glad she came along. She slowed my running pace down, which was a big help.
My goal was to run/jog the whole thing. Unfortunately I didn’t run the whole thing. I walked about 1/4 mile after I hit the 2 mile mark.
I definitely recommend a run like the Color Vibe, especially if it is your first time. It takes off the competitive edge and is just a blast, of color of course.
