My first 5K!

Monday, March 03, 2008

I'm running my first 5K in two weeks! I signed up for the race on Saturday, and had a moment of panic ... what if I can't run it! To prove to myself that I could, I ran 5K on the treadmill yesterday, and I'm fine today. The plan is to run long runs all this week and the beginning of next... hopefully going for longer than 5K so I can think to myself that I've run further.

Race is the day before St. Patrick's day... and my long sleeve athletic shirt is green! I think it will be a fun, festive race and then we adjourn to local bars for Irish food and beverages. =) I might order my first beer...

    I am so proud of you. You are one of those people who gives me the incentive to not just loose weight but to be healthier. I loved my bootcamp experience.

    I just know you will love your 5 K experience.

    Wow, you are a rock star. Seriously. One of my biggest goals in life is to run a 5K. Heaing that you are going to do it makes it seem possible for me.

    I enjoyed reading your SparkPage. I am *so* in agreement -- I'm not on a diet anymore. This is it -- for the rest of my life.

    I stll have a long way to go -- but I'm taking it one day at a time.

    Thanks for the inspiration...

    I am jumping up and down, and this gives me something to really look forward to on St. Patty's day. The Posse will be rooting for you, every single step of the way! Love, Ferret
