My First 5K in Sevilla
Since starting my fitness group in Sevilla (Marvel my Fitness - Sevilla), I have decided to say yes to all of the invitations I receive to participate in fitness related activities. While I would never call myself a runner, many of the friends I have met so far love to run, so I have found myself signing up to participate in several races over the next few months. Making connections with new people in Spain through fitness could not be more of a dream come true to me, so I am happy to run and participate in new group activities I might not have considered before. This is what this experience is all about to me: saying yes to new experiences and challenging myself more and more every day to get out of my mental and physical comfort zones.
Today I ran what seems to be the first of many 5Ks here in Sevilla with one of my bosses and her work out group. The race was Tus Kilómetros Nos Dan Vida, an annual event to raise money for childhood cancer. Our time was around 30 minutes, and we have challenged ourselves to get the time under 30 minutes in the 5K we plan to run next week!
