Some of the proudest moments in my life have been training for and finishing races. I remember my first 5k, my first Tough Mudder, and my first 10k. I'm usually super nervous leading up to a big race, but I always have such a great feeling of accomplishment at the end. I'm not sure if I'll ever run further than a 10k...that's probably about as far as I'll go. But I definitely plan to continue to run them, because it's a great way to stay in shape!
