Today I accomplished something that I honestly never thought I would ever do. I ran my first 5k and it was one of the craziest most exciting days yet. My best friend and I participated in the Color Run which was held at Dodgers Stadium here in LA and man, was it a blast. I never in a million years thought I would be someone who could actually finish running three miles, let alone enjoying it. Running has become something I cannot go without. It is refreshing, exhilarating and it's the best part of my nights to just enjoy a gossip break jogging through the summer.
We obviously got a little messy and I'm honestly not sure how long I will be scrubbing blue out of my hair but it was so worth it. I feel accomplished, healthy and extremely extremely tired. We will be participating in more upcoming runs and I'm sure this one will be a new yearly tradition. The run wasn't even bad, it went by so quickly and getting splattered by powdered paint at every turn sure took our minds off of the heat. Probably one of my favourite moments of 2014 and just so so blessed to have a best friend that I can enjoy literally everything with. I just want to put this out there that anyone can do it, we can all become runners, athletes, healthy content human beings as long as you set your mind to it and keep pushing through. Who would have thought the girl who couldn't finish a mile in high school would have shed all that weight and actually finished a 5k marathon. I cannot wait for our next run and am already looking forward to the Color Run 2015.
