Signed myself up for a 10k

Monday, April 01, 2013


One of my goals for 2013 is to run a 10k. A SparkFriend mentioned a half-marathon that she had been looking into in June and I really liked the location where it's going to be held and thought it would be a great experience but then another friend reminded me of my desire to run a 10k in 2013. I thought maybe I'd find one of those to run first and see how it went before signing up for a half. I will start training for that half, though, since YOU NEVER KNOW!!!

I graduated from Pharmacy school at Creighton University and the Phi Lambda Sigma Leadership committee helps to sponsor a fundraiser for two Creighton University students who passed away while in Pharmacy and Physical Therapy schools. They help to raise money for scholarships to be given in their names to Creighton students. Since the cost of school at Creighton is astronomical and I was once a needy student I figured that this is an awesome way to help someone else.

Now . . . I need to get in a little more running than I've been doing but I know that I'll make it okay, maybe more walking than normal but I know that I can do it! My goal this week is to get out and run 3 days. I think the weather is going to be okay.

I also need to get in my 3 days of emoticon cause I've really been lacking there!

Come on, Kelly, emoticon

    Jessika_56 is right! Get yourself a decent training plan, and as you say, you never know, that halfer could suddenly look mighty appealing. xoxo

    Awesome job, signing up for a race is great motivation because you have a "deadline" to get running! Sounds like a great cause.
