Decided I would try running again, getting bored with some of my workouts, so what the heck, gonna give running another shot. For extra motivation, I signed up to run a 5K at my daughter's school in May, all proceeds go to charity, so even better. I ran yesterday on my lunch break, who cares if i'm all sweaty when I get done, if I let that stop me I would be missing out on an hour of exercise. I have been slowly working up to running during my walks anyway, so last week I pulled a Forrest Gump," I just kept runnin, and runnin and runnin" and it actually felt great. Yesterday I ran 2 miles at lunch and walked the third mile. I have put myself up to the challenge. I may not be as fast as I would like to be YET, but heck, I CAN RUN !!! I have also decided that i am shooting for a personal best time to finish the race - I'm giving it my all - it's all or nothing.
