Thursday, September 24, 2009      17 comments

It finally hit me last night that I'm running my first 5K on Saturday, which is made scarier by the fact that I still haven't made it up to 3 miles in my runs AND that due to injury, vacation, etc. I haven't been diligent with the C25K program. ... Read more
