Final 5 by the 5th

My original goal was to run a race yesterday- a 5K to commemorate the year from when it hit me just how much I needed to begin this journey.  However, life took a strange turn with an unexpected trip out of town (just for vacation but the original plan brought the vacation to me) so that didn't happen quite like I had planned.  So, instead, to commemorate the final month in the 5 by the 5th I decided to run a 5K route from my sister's house.  I didn't know the route well, and it was hot, so my time was a bit slower than normal but it was completed and I felt good upon finishing!  The biggest difference between central Ohio and East TN?  The elevation!!!  In TN it's nothing to have differences of up to 400 ft.  39/49 ft were the most of a difference in elevation that I dealt with :)  Flat, flat, flat... :)

So- what have I learned through this running journey?
