My first 5k!
Tuesday, July 03, 2012
I swear God is trying to forcefully change my ways or something. In the last 3 weeks, I have won a free bootcamp 3-month long workout thing and as of yesterday, free registration to this 5k. www.colormerad.com/
I entered the boot camp thing but was sort of hoping I wouldn't win it. The 5k I never entered but there was a mix up with another giveaway that I had entered so I ended up winning the 5k registration instead of amusement park tickets.
The 5k is on July 21st so I have a little over 2 weeks to prepare myself for it after taking a few weeks off of exercising simply because I didn't feel like it and was extremely busy.
I was able to convince my husband to pay the registration and do the race with me because this race is everything but normal. Throughout the race you get color bombed with packs and handfuls of colored cornstarch, leaving your entire body covered in color. This sounded fun but I really wanted to have someone that I knew to throw powder at and share in the fun atmosphere.
I'll likely be walking the majority of it as I don't even have 3 weeks to train for it but today I'll be starting to build my body up to be able to handle it better. I really don't want to walk the whole thing and would love to surprise myself and those that come to watch me with how I'm able to overcome these obstacles and show true endurance.
Once the 5k is done, I hope to be better able to handle a bootcamp workout. One step at a time...
