First 5 mile run, feeling athletic again

I ran my first 5 mile run on Saturday. I had the legs to go further but I had to stop because Lauren had finished her workout and needed to leave. I think I'm going to set an hour aside this weekend and do my first hour run.

I'm definitely starting to see a difference in my endurance and just my overall athletic performance. My lungs have never felt better. I've lost a few pounds and my muscles are starting to get firmer...especially the calves.

My goal is still to run a 10k by the end of the month. I definitely think I've got a shot at making it.
