The time it took me to complete my first 5K.
Though I was sort of dreading my first road race ever, it turned out to be a really fun thing. I took 2 puffs of my asthma inhaler at 7:30am and felt great the entire run & afterward as well. It helped that my BFF & I made a pact to stay together, to run as much as we could & to walk when one of us felt like it. We took our time and set our goal to complete the race in under 40 minutes. Reasonable goal setting typically brings joy. Last year I wanted to do a half marathon, and when someone suggested a 5K or 10K, I said I didn't want to get hooked on these road races, I just wanted to do the half marathon to say that I did it. Since then I have realized that my ambitious nature comes across many random things it wants to do, but really first things first. It was so fun, and being the BFF she is, she's already chosen the next one. Hope to see you at this one on May 8th.

Of course we couldn't resist in some silly picture taking in Chinatown.
Pulled out my "How to save the world" book & thought this was worth taking note of. I plan on sharing more photos from this little book soon. Happy Monday!
