    just finished my first 5k on the 28th…and am doing another on September 6th. Thanks for the great advice, I could have used it for Saturday’s race…but it was just as you described.

    I love the “There are no Mean Girls at a race”. I totally had that mentality before I did my first 5k. I wish you could bottle the overwhelming I can conquer the world, everyone loves everyone, adrenaline filled feeling that I get at races. It’s amazing! 🙂

    Congrats on running your first 5k Ryan!!! You have had many exciting first’s on your journey to health and well being!! I am so proud of you, and cheering for you on your continued success! My name is Tammy Garner and I am the one who wrote and recorded the Hypnosis CD’s for the Ideal Shape program. So I understand the Sub-Conscious mind and how it works and how it can mess with us sometimes! I love when you started having all the doubts and “what if” moments that you turned and faced your fears.. and kept going no matter what!!! Way to go… you are an inspiration to so many!!!

    I agree with the sense of camaraderie that is felt. I’ve ran a couple 5Ks and my dad runs longer distances and every time we both make friends and love to hear complete strangers cheering for us! I agree with you, you really do expect the “mean girls” to come out when it’s really not even close to what happens.

    Congrats on the 5K Ryan! That really is a great accomplishment!
