Mini Monday: My First 5k!
Surprise! Those of you who follow my Instagram (@wornthreadbare) already know this, but I ran a 5k this past weekend! Yes it was snowing, yes I was one of the only non-OSU Div 1 athletes running, yes I had to pee, and yes I wish I'd run outside in the cold at least once before yesterday. But it was worth it!
The race was founded in memory of a 25 year old girl who was non-smoker her whole life, yet died of lung cancer a few years ago. My family has a whole bunch of ties to lung cancer organizations for a variety of reasons, so although I ended up with an embarrassingly bad time result, I at least felt good that I finished and helped out a great cause!
