Hello all, I am so excited to share that this weekend, I will run my first 5k. The run is for a great cause and it will be held at the Palm Beach Zoo.

As I mentioned a month or so ago, I joined a half marathon race. Training started on August 13, 2016 in downtown West Palm Beach. I am so excited to share with you all that the training is going great!! Before I decided to join this race, I literally could not run more than a quarter of a block without panting and feeling like I was about to pass out. šŸ™‚ Yes I was terrible at running and honestly thought that it was just not my sport. Well I am glad to inform that I am up to running/walking 4 miles. I haven’t made it exactly in the best time possible, but to me the important thing is that I have made it this far.

I am stillĀ working on findingĀ that perfect pace, where I am able to jog, talk and keep it going without the need to stop to walk for a few minutes. The goal is to find that ideal pace where I can complete by run without ever stopping. I must thank Eau Palm Beach Marathon and my dear friend Barbie Zambrano for starting this group. I have met the most amazing people and love the support and encouragement that weĀ provideĀ to each other.

Being able to accomplish this 5k run this weekend will be a huge accomplishment for me and will help me in reaching that goal of running the half marathon in December. Don’t ever be afraid to do something that you have always wanted to do. You only get one life and we need to reach those goals. No one is going to do it for you, so get up, get out there and make it happen.

What are some of you life goals? Is there something that you have always wanted to do but need that little push to make it happen? Share your story!
