Cue Pomp & Circumstance, There's a Graduate in the House

I actually did it. I graduated from the Couch to 5K program today. There were a couple of walks due to an evil side cramp at mile 2.20. I had to stop and dry heave when the pain got really bad. Sorry about all of the info but running can be pretty nasty. (click the link only if you have a strong stomach)

I can't type much because I have to take the kids to 4H but I wanted to share my accomplishment with my buddies in bloggerville. :) Thanks for all of your support along the way.

It was a nice run today except for the side pain. A couple of times I think I really hit my zone. The running became less labored and I hit a sort of Zen feeling. Hard to explain. I think I found the right pace and form a couple of times.

40 minutes (includes warm up and cool down) 3.05 miles for a 13.06 pace.

My fastest pace hit was 7.2 miles per hour. Woohoo!

I'm am a very Happy Texan right now.
