bit by the running bug

on June 29, 2012

so i’ve always heard that once people do their first 5K, they get hooked…they’re “bit by the race bug.”

well…i can tell you from first hand experience that this is so true!! I ran my first 5K ever in early June. My coworker/friend asked if I wanted to do the susan g. komen race for the cure in hartford with her, and i begrudgingly agreed…committing to a race is a good push to keep on training and working out. 

well, the big day came and my friend and i ran the entire thing together, and it was AWESOME! it was such a rush to cross that finish line! the entire day was so great, even though it decided to pour the entire day! the rain could not damper our spirits, we had such a great time!

since then, i’ve been constantly looking up events in the CT area trying to find more races to do! i signed up for the 4 on the 4th race in chester (which is absolutely gorgeous!) and today i just signed up to do the penguin 5K in mystic in October!! A PENGUIN 5K!!! not only do you get to do a 5K race, but afterwards you can watch the african penguins do their own race at the aquarium…HOW AWESOME IS THAT!!?!?!? (for those that don’t know me, i have an unhealthy obsession with penguins….i got to pet one once and it was the highlight of my year..)

so yeah…running has become so much more for me in the past month!! i look forward to it each day…i get bummed when i can’t go for a run, and now in a few days i get to experience another race! i hope i get the same high i got from the last one!!
