I DID IT!
Dirty Girl Mud Run is done and I am a happy girl!
Thank you all for the sweet and encouraging words on Friday.
You helped calm my nerves and were a great boost of confidence.
I did not run all that much (or as much as I should have) - but felt good about what I accomplished.
The small goals I had set for myself were successfully reached and I am excited about that.
My biggest goal was not to freak out at the beginning - and I didn't.. I was nervous but relaxed.
That helped me out so much. It was a great way to start.
We were in the first heat of the day, starting at 8:00. Let me tell you, that was the BEST decision.
Our heat only had 50 or so people and the course was not a muddy disaster yet.
99% of the time we were alone on the course. It was great.
Dirty Girl was a great beginning race for me.
There was not a lot of pressure or competition.
It was not timed.
There were women of all shapes and sizes.
Everyone was there to have fun.
Here is to many more happy 5k's in my future.
Thank you all for believing in me.
