After almost completing this goal last year only to fall short and then revising it after my ankle injury this year, this goal is FINALLY COMPLETED! I'm beyond words excited! I figured I was being very ambitious when I created it, but after almost 24 months of doing 5k's around Orange County and LA- I've done it! Now, by no means am I done doing 5k's forever- I honestly think I'm going to one up myself and attempt to train for a half marathon!
My 12th and final 5k for this goal was the Chapman University 5k. This was my 3rd year in a row completing it and it was just as amazing as ever! In previous years I was joined by my father, sisters and aunts, but for this year's race it was just me- solo.
Do you know how hard it is to get yourself up at 6am on a Saturday!? Being the only one doing this race I could have easily slept in, but I managed to push myself up outta bed (some lil yorkie I know was not too thrilled with me).
Not only do I love this race because of the college's beautiful campus and surrounding neighborhood (gotta support my sisters school!)- but also because of the amazing event staff. Their social media team has been rooting me on since I participated in the race last year- and even remembered about my DZP goal! It only seemed appropriate to finish this goal at this race.
THANK YOU CHAPMAN EVENTS TEAM FOR YOUR SUPPORT!
