I ran a 5K this morning!!!!

I ran it all except for about 2 blocks, but still I RAN A 5K!!! It was an amazing experience. About 2,000 people were there, and as I was running I could see a whole sea of people in front of us. It reminded me of Hajj, except way more colorful.

There was this old couple who were running to celebrate their 35th wedding aniversary. Awwww.

I still feel so full of energy. I only had green tea today because I didn’t even feel like drinking regular tea, I was that wide awake.

I am inspired. I was so excited the night before, I laid out exactly what I was going to wear, jumped out of bed at quarter to 6, prayed Fajr, had a small bowl of cereal, and I was good to go. I just need to recreate that feeling everyday!

Saw Journey to Mecca again today. Just as breathtaking.

Now I’m off to a baby shower…what a day!
