Here we go. I'm done having babies (yay!) And am ready to set some real goals. For years I've been wanting to get into running even though I've never been a runner in the past. Today I looked up local 5k runs happening near me in the next few months. I know that I am more likely to stick to something if I have an event to be ready for. Funds are low for us at the moment so I haven't registered yet but i have my eye on a bubble run taking place September 1st. For many people, a 5k is something they could run in their sleep but for someone who has never in their life run a mile without stopping (points to self) this would be a huge personal acheivement. I figure I'll start with daily walks while on maternity leave especially since I'm not supposed to do much more than that for the first 6 weeks anyway. Hopefully, by the time I'm medically cleared to do more I will have already worked up to it and be ready to start some real running!! What better time to create a new habit than when I'm on leave from work anyway!!? Wish me luck!!

    Don't feel like you have to run the whole 5k. People do a combo of run/walk. Best of luck to you! emoticon And congrats on the baby!
