Hello ,My bucket list friends ! One of my goals for 2018 is to get back into doing 5k races. I’m happy to say that I recently did my first race of the year it was a really fun! Keep reading to hear all about it !
Super Run 5k February 17th 2018
I really enjoy doing 5k races but it had been a while since I had done one because I was in massage school for a year . Now that I have more time I’m excited to get back into doing something I love . The day of the race I was excited and ready to go . As you might have guessed the race had a super hero theme. A lot of the racers dressed up in some really fun and creative costumes but I stuck to my workout pants and a purple shirt . I was doing the race with my mom and we both wanted to walk the 5k so we stayed together during the race . The race was held at a beautiful park that I had been to before but I had never done a race at . The was a lot of great scenery to look at as my mom and I fast walked our way through the race . When we got close to the finish I ran across the finish line ! I was so happy to get my awesome finisher’s medal . Not all 5k races give out finishers medals but I love when they do and that was one of the reasons that I chose this race . I had a great time with my mom at the Super 5k and I can’t wait until I get to do another one !

Hello my bucket list friends! I did something really awesome today. I did the color run 5k! I’m trying my best to get ready for #167 (complete the Disneyland half marathon) I’m really happy to have completed another 5k and I hope to do a 10k before the Disneyland half marathon
The color run May 28, 2016
The color run is one of the most well-known 5ks , I had seen pictures of it and it looked like a lot of fun so I signed up. I was planning on trying to beat my time from my last 5k but it was so hot that I decided to walk most of the way. My mom and I had a pretty good time at this race even with the heat. It was a lot of fun getting covered in colored powder! There were also huge beach balls one even got brought on to the race course. Overall it was a fun and happy time. I would do this race again!

Hello bucket list friends! In an earlier blog post I announced that I signed up for the Disneyland half marathon that will take place later this year. I also said that I had joined a gym to help me to reach my goal of completing the half marathon. You can read about it here. I thought that now would be a good time to give you all an update on my progress with number 167 and tell you about my first 5k of 2016 so let’s get going.
Wildflower run 4/3/16
Last week I completed my first 5k of 2016! I had a lot of fun doing this race, it has been around since 1984 and it was awesome to be a part of it. I had not done a 5k since I started going to the gym and I was both nervous and excited to see how I would do. I did my very best with this race, my time was not what I wanted it to be but overall I was happy with it. I finished with a time of 41:29. I have another race coming up in May and I hope it finish in 39 minutes or less. Overall I really enjoyed this 5k and I’m really proud of myself for all my hard work and I can’t wait to keep getting better!
