So, I never even signed up for the 5k today. I drove back and forth past the tent for sign up about a gazillion times trying to talk myself into doing it, only to drive away! I am not happy with myself right now AT ALL!! I went back around 1 pm when they started the race and saw all of these people and thought to myself- I could've done that...That could've been ME out there...but NO! I can't tell you how upset I am with myself. <BR> <BR> Now, the next 5k race I want to do is May 7th which ...

I went for a run/walk last night and ended up going 6 miles!!! THAT is almost like finishing a 10k. It was 19 degrees outside and sooooo bitter cold..but I ended up finishing. I just thought I would share with everyone. The night before I only went 2 miles so that is 4 more miles gone yesterday..YAY!!!

Wed, 8 Dec 2010 07:40:32 EST I have this uncontrollable urge.... to go for a run...and not just a lil jog up the street and back..I seriously wanna go for a LONG run! What has gotten into me?? I have timed the distance down the road from me and another road that connects to the main road and have timed it at 3 miles. If I were to run it, it would be a total of 6 miles...should I do it? I just cannot get it out of my head..its like I need to run...LOL! Perhaps I will ponder this thought for awhile! I will let you all def know what I end up doing! <em>312</...
