My 5k Running Journey

My 5k Journey

Hey friends, welcome back!

So I’m not a big fan of running. Like. Not. At. All lol. I used to run a lot while I was in college but it never became something that I enjoyed even though I felt great afterward. And I always wanted it to be something that could potentially be a healthy hobby of mine but it just never happened. (Mostly I never stuck with it lol)

During college, I worked out a lot. I did a lot of strength training and cardio. Those were the days. I could easily run 3 miles nonstop and I was very proud of that. So I feel confident that if I focus on the end goal and my overall health, it’s totally possible.

The thing about running is that I have a love-hate relationship with it and I go through phases as well. The start of a run is always the hardest so by the end of my first run Imma be like

Recently, my friend and I decided to register for the annual Culinaria 5K Wine & Beer Run in San Antonio, Texas. If you’re curious and want to learn more about the race or are interested in participating, I’ll leave a link riiiiight

Here β†’ Culinaria 5K Wine & Beer Run 2018

This has been something I’ve been wanting to do for a while now and I’m excited that it’s finally happening. I’m also excited that I’ll be getting a free t-shirt afterward lol. I love me a good t-shirt, especially if it’s free. OOOO and food. There will be food if that motivates any of you to want to participate lol.

Now from the day, I post this, up until the big day will give me roughly around 2 1/2 months to train. The problem now is getting my booty out of bed and doing it. It’s possible. I believe it comes down to your mindset and being motivated and dedicated as well as make a training schedule. Pinterest has endless amounts of how to train for a 5k or if you simply want to start running just cause, Pinterest has that too.

I’ll be posting a 1-month update and 2-month update and document my progress leading up to the big day.

I’m curious, who’s ran a 5k or is planning on running one this year?

Let me know. And make sure to share this on social media.

Until next time, peace Fam. ✌🏽

  1. Running a 5k has been a goal of mine that I keep putting off. Every time I start trying i get pregnant and have the worst morning sickness. Lol. Thanks for the motivation to pick this goal up again.

  2. I ran a 5k once, but I believe I did more walking than running. I would love to learn to train to do a 5k. If you put your mind to it I am sure you can do it! I cannot wait to see your progress. Thank you for sharing this, it got me motivated to learn as well.

  3. Great goal! You’ve actually made me think about going for a run in the mornings while everyone is asleep, my dog could even run alongside me. I feel the same way about running though… I hate it, but I feel great for it afterwards. Thanks for the idea even if I don’t manage to go through with it lol!
