You did it! After training for weeks, nursing sore muscles and pushing yourselves beyond where you thought you could ever go (ever!), you stepped out onto that 5k course and kicked some serious booty. We are already celebrated “the stronger you” in our pep rally post, but make sure you hop over there to remind yourself just how far you’ve come.
Of course, now that you’ve completed the first challenge, we’re not going to stop here. Stay tuned because we’ll be announcing the next challenge very soon and we’d love for you to join us! If you didn’t join us on the first challenge, we hope we can convince you to come along on the next one.
It was such fun to watch the red-faced photos roll in on the #RFR5k feed and Instagram as you completed your 5k races. Some people ran in organized races, others grabbed a friend and journeyed through a 5k course in their own neighborhood, and some bravely stepped out on their own and knocked off 5k before the sun had risen. Each of your stories is inspiring and we’re glad to be able to share some of your photos here.
Just look at all of these red faces. What a happy, healthy group!

Courtney (who made the Color Run a family affair) and Cara (her first 5k)
Lori of Recipe Girl and Laura (she rocked a 5k in Vermont)
Beth (who ran her first 10k), and Kim (her first 10k) and Dawn (her first 5k)

You are all amazing! Now get out there and keep running.
