The Biggest Loser 5k Here I Come!

Friday, February 15, 2013

I'm so excited that I've registered for The Biggest Loser 5k in Sacramento. I know, I know, it's only a 5k but I'm excited to be a part of an event that is sponsored by The Biggest Loser. A show that has inspired me since Season 1 Episode 1. From what I've read about the event it's going to be nothing but positive energy and encouragement, which is something we can all use a dose of. No judgement, just people getting to the finish line as best they can. I've got 4 weeks to train for it and I hope to have a time of about 45 minutes. I've only ever run/walked a 5k on my treadmill and my best time is 50 minutes. I'm sure it's going to be a whole different experience from being by myself on the treadmill and staring at the tv to being part of a huge crowd cheering each other on.

The event is on March 16th and I'll let you all know how it went when it's over. Wish me luck!!!!

    There is no such thing as "only a 5K!" I remember my first and I remember my 32nd! Each one is an experience. If fact, I press harder for speed in my 5Ks than my 10K and my Half Marathons. The most important thing to remember is "Run Your Own Race!" I can appreciate the speed racers But I have more respect for the first timers and those that share this journey with me. If you are doing this program, you'll be ready.
    I'm totally excited for you! Stay strong, focused, and train well! I look forward to reading about your incredible experience!

    I'm sure it will be a lot fun. And stop with the "it's only a 5k" because I know thin people who cringe at the thought of running for THREE miles. You are awesome. After you finish the race, I hope you agree.
