I participated in my first ever 5K at the Belfius Brussels Marathon and Half Marathon, and finished with a time of 29:26.
I have witnessed a lot of my close friends participate in these type of races over the last couple of years, but never really saw the appeal to it myself.
I did this event primarily because my wife wanted to do it and having ran 3 miles in the gym a few times, I knew it was not very hard.
Having finished this though, my view on it is completely changed because I really enjoyed the event, and loved the atmosphere and sense of achievement that comes from finishing something like this.
Looking forward to a 10k now!
