My new BFF...

Not the girl...the treadmill! I have been working my butt off to meet a goal I made for myself: To run a 5K on my 30th Birthday.
I only have a month left to train and don't really know what I am doing so I am just making it up as I go. I am currently running 20 minutes and just about 2 miles a day. This will be my first 5K ever and I am so excited for it! I never really believed people that said that running is addicting...I am now a believer!!

5K's are fun...I am not sure I could do much more than that...but I did have fun on the few that I have done.

5k's are addicting too. I am not a super fast runner, but getting to the finish line is a pretty good feeling! I am hoping to do a couple this summer!!!

Wow! That's exciting. I'm starting to run, just a little, myself. I was talking myself out of the weird thoughts I was having about running a 5 or 10K, but your little post is actually a motivator. Maybe...

Heather English said...

wait! what 5k are you doing in a month? I want to do it too!

Ali said...

I am not doing a real 5K next month. I am just making my own 5K on my Birthday cause it is on a Saturday and I made that a goal for myself. But anyone and everyone is welcome to join me. :)

That is awesome! I am trying to get back into running. I was one of those people who used to love running. Used to being the key words. Now I run down the street and I'm winded, it's pathetic. You totally inspire me. Time to get movin' huh? You can totally do it!
