Guess What I Just Did??!!

I just registered for the Greater Lansing Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure.

Yep. I'm doing a 5K.


You may recall that I was "running" until Brian hired a replacement for Jessica, so I could start working out at Fitness Together again. Well, he hired Katie. When I went in on Tuesday morning for my first session with her, I commented how glad I was that she was his new trainer. I told her I had been running and if I wasn't careful I would probably end up doing a 5K, and maybe I would even start to like running. Ewwww!
Katie smiled and said, "Hey, I just heard about a 5K coming up this weekend. Maybe we could run in it together!?"
That's really all it took. We found out the details of the race and agreed today that we're going to run. Mind you, we're just running.
We aren't running competitively.
But I'm going to do it. I'm going to run a 5K. And I'm actually kind of excited about it.

Most years we "walk" the 5k, usually with a toddler and several small children, but as they grow up, I will have to "borrow" another toddler - cos I just don't do running! Wishing you well, we are right behind you.....about 5 k behind you!!

That is such a great goal to have! And when you finish the race, well words cant express the feeling.

Good for you! And you know, running is suppose to reduce irritability. :-)

So funny to read this on a DAY where my husband just ran 7.6 miles (12k) in a relay of a marathon. We got home and I was so insprired by him, I just left the house and ran 3 miles. It felt SOOOO good. I agree with "becoming me" that it reduces irritability!!!!
