My First 5K (Run Karlene Run Series)

        I just finished my first REAL 5K run. Thanks to Summit Water and 100 Plus for the compli :) It was actually not my first time to register, I've registered for several running events before but wasn't able to make it because of invalid and unacceptable reasons :-p Thank God this time I finally made it!

LIFESAVERS RUN it is! The gun start for 5K is supposed to start at 5:45am, I woke up around 4:50am. I think I was late already so I kinda feel lazy to get up and prepare for that run. Thanks to my friend Louis for encouraging me that I can still make it!

I arrived at the venue 8 mins after the gun start but it didn't discourage me to continue and finish the 5k run. Even if I was the only one left I still continued. I even surpassed those running for 3k (Haha :p)

And I reached the finish line with a time of 39:35, not bad for a first timer my friends keep on saying. Hopefully, they're right :)

Next goal, 35mins time for 5K. Need to train, train and train.

I'm a bit late seeing this but congratulations! Look at that big smile as you are running. I'm pretty sure you are the happiest runner I have ever seen. haha

Proud of you. Keep it up
