I had a bad side stich, out of breath and very, very tired. I got very nervous about the race. I just wasn’t sure enough I could finish without any pain or a bad feeling. Continue reading

Running towards 5k

537252_497659340277033_1201607893_nOne of the reasons why I started this blog and my Shoe No Buy is that I love a challenge. The louder people say it’s difficult or that I can’t to it, the more dedicated I get.
