I used to run. By used to, I mean that I ran in high school (for fitness, not competetion) from about age 14-17. Then I ran again, from about 2009 to 2010, then off and on during 2011. I never registered for a race though, although during my most recent affair with running I planned to. My regimen was normally about 2-3 miles 3 times a week, with an occasional 5 miler. I just never got around to it.
I am picking up running again (at the beginning, I don't want to get injured). I am doing a couch to 5K program, I just started week 1 on Wednesday. I plan to run the 2nd run today, 3rd one Saturday. I counted the weeks, and it is an 8 week program culminating in being able to just run in the 9th week.
I decided I want to register for the Color Run here in Little Rock, it's being held on November 10th. Yesterday I counted up the weeks and...it's at the very end of week 8. How funny is that? It's meant to be!!! This is a great incentive to keep me at my training since I have no leeway with my time. I will be registering Wednesday when I get paid. I'm already nervous, but more than that I am excited!!
