5k day

I just completed my first 5k. I believe the word for firsts is inaugural, which works for me because I plan on keeping this tradition going.
Next month, I’m going to be in another one, but this time running it. The running part scares me, you see it’s another first.
Along the way today, I was thinking of many things, but I kept a mantra going: this is for when I didn’t believe in me/this is for my dad/this is dedicated to all the men I cared about who put me down/this is for Matt Fenton…. I’m no expert in sports psychology but this really spurred me to run the last leg.
I’m so glad I decided to say yes instead of give into fear.
