This first 5k I did on a treadmill and it was mainly a walking pace, but I was so thrilled and proud of myself because I did it...I finished! Additionally I was so excited because the company Flex it Pink was so supportive and encouraging as well. After enjoying it so much I continued walking and taking part in 5ks until I finally put on my big girl pants, swallowed my fear and did a few real time rather than virtual 5ks. What an experience! The crowds, the camaraderie, the volunteers, the swag pack..it was amazing and I could easily see how it could be addictive to people!
In honor of it being one year anniversary and still loving me some Flex it Pink, I am doing my second annual Run for the Boobies Virtual 5k on the same day as last year and really celebrating the health changes I have reached, the knowledge that I can continue to make the health decisions and changes I need to and the true blessing that I am able to keep working on this path called my health and life:
