5K, do I dare?
Sunday, January 02, 2011
I am ready to turn the page to the end of a long chapter of self-sabotage and abuse. I am tired of being tired and feeling fat and ugly. I am tired of watching other folks and wondering how it feels to go from being the chubby one to one who looks and feels vibrant & healthy?
I am ready, I really believe I am. I am pondering the concept of trying my first 5K run. Granted, it's only 3.1 miles but I have never even considered doing a mile, ever. Although it's tax season, and the busiest time of year for me, the distraction and training will do me some good. It has to! With the others that are in the group training, it will give me the motivation and the "I don't want to be left behind" inner-push that I need. I suppose it sounds pitiful to need that extra outside fear/motivation but whatever it takes.
Since I am turning 40 this year, it seems that it's about time I take myself seriously and make me a "priority".
Here is to 2011 and the amazing changes that lay ahead.
Let the training begin!
