I did it... I accomplished my first 5k. It was in the rain and 45 degree F weather. I did it in about 45 minutes which I am rather happy with. It feels so good to have done this. A year ago I wouldn't have been about to do this.

My first 5k was cold and rainy too. What a fantastic accomplishment for you. Doing a few 5k's a year, if you enjoy them (or at least enjoy having finished them) can be a great way to stay motivated. Congratulations!
