Okay, some of you are probably going to really think I've lost my mind...but yes, I am going to run in a 5K at the end of May. I've been running a lot at the gym and I've enjoyed it, so Jonathan (my trainer) mentioned to me one day that I should start to run races. (Yes, I thought he was crazy...me running with other people around that I could accidentally harm with my clumsiness...) But I started to think about it more and Jason brought it up that he would like to run in a 5K sometime as well, I figured what the hell...
So with a little help, I found a race to run in, it's nothing big it just looks like something fun to start out with. It's the Skirt Chaser 5K Race here in Raleigh. The winner gets a prize, but I'm just going to run to see how well I actually do. I normally run on a treadmill, so I'm going to have to start running outside to get used to it. I have to actually watch where I'm going and breathe at the same time! (Geez...that's going to be hard!)
The race is the weekend after I get back from Forks, so hopefully I won't do too bad after not getting to run like I normally would for a week. But we shall see!
I'll try to keep you all updated on how the training goes.
