I can't today between having to host a book club this morning and hosting a birthday party for my son this afternoon. Plus my knees/ankles have been acting up this week. :( After getting 10,000+ steps daily for over a month, I've gotten around 5000 or less most days this week. Boo.

I picked up my packet for this today and I'm so excited to be running this with my dad and stepmom! Of course, they gave me the wrong sized shirt, boo, so it's like a tent on me, and I have to try to trade it out tomorrow. Unless they gave me my dad's shirt, and vice versa, which is possible because both our names start similarly (Amanda and Andrew) and we were right next to each other on the list. My stepmom will let me know after she picks up their packages. Hopefully one way or another though I'll get the right sized shirt! :D

I'm looking forward to doing this 5K at a pretty steady/easier pace, rather than pushing myself too hard. But who knows - maybe I'll get to the start line and my competitive self will take over and push for a PR. :D

Amanda posted previously about this awesome 5K event benefiting the Rape Crisis Center here in San Antonio. I urge you all to be a part of this very important fund raiser. I've been affiliated with this organization in the past and can tell you the work they do is so important. If you never have walked or run a 5K before, this would be a great place to start. The event details are online at www.active.com/running/san-antonio-t

Here is what Amanda had posted about it:
Hey everyone! There's a great 5K (walk or run) coming up on February 23rd. Run 4 Hope benefits the Rape Crisis Center and as 5Ks go, it's a pretty low entry fee - $20 until Feb 15th, $30 from the 16th until race day. It should be a pretty small event, as this is only the third year they're hosting it, so it won't be too crowded. Here are the details:

Location: McAlister Park
13102 Jones Maltsberger Road San Antonio, TX
Pavilion 2

Date: Saturday, February 23rd

Time: 8:00 am

Packet Pick-up will be on Friday, Feb. 22nd at Soler Sports located at 2589 Jackson Keller from 11:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Race Day Registration Fee will be $30.00 for all participants. Cash or Check only.

Online registration is here:

Wish I had known earlier I'd have signed up for this one. The wife and I are signed up for the 2nd Annual Be My Valentine 5K, which is on the 10th. If you have a schedule or some future ones I'll be happy to try and join around May. I have a huge goal set for April 27th and will be training for that.
