Officially Registered for a 5k

Monday, March 01, 2010

Never in a million years did I ever think I could run 100 yards let alone a 5k. But in the last few months, I've realized that I can run more than 100 yards. Not only that, I can handle it for 26 minutes. That's how long I ran today!! 2.1 miles...One more mile to work up to and it will be a 5k! So yes, I can do it.

And to prove it, the other night I officially registered for the Rite Aid 5k on May 15th...Am I scared?? You bet!! But you know, even if I have to walk a little bit during the race, I kind of have a feeling that it will be totally awesome when I cross that finish line!!

    Good for you! You will do great!! Registering is half the battle - convincing yourself that you can and you will. I'm registered for the Half Marathon the next day and hoping I can complete it now that I've been sidelined with a sprained ankle for so long. Oh well, things happen! Good luck with your training and increasing your mileage. Sounds like you've already done a terriffic job getting to where you are! Hope you're enjoying it, too :)
