So I was reading an inspiring blog post the other day by our friend Foodie. She was talking about doing a 5k and how excited she wasabout it. I am not sure what came over me, lack of sugar in my system, a moment of delusion I don’t know. The next thing I know I tell Foodie I want to do a 5k by my next birthday! Seriously, we all have those crazy spontaneous moments right? Not one to procrastinate Foodie sent me an email right away with a couch to 5k plan. When I opened her email I kinda got a stomach ache and felt really tired just clicking the button. Anything to do with running just wipes me out! I quickly closed her email and said “I will deal with this tomorrow.” So tomorrow came and went 3 times. Then tonight I go onto twitter and declare “I am going to start the couch to 5k training tomorrow!” What the HAY is my deal? Tomorrow never comes when I choose to do it tomorrow! As soon as I realized I had said it I quickly responded with “I am going to start tonight not tomorrow.”
TONIGHT I started my training for a 5k by my birthday on September 8th. It was not near as bad as I thought it would be. Surprisingly I have gotten into better shape over the last few weeks 🙂 I have decided that I am really going to do this! For some reason if you put a challenge in front of me I just have to do it. It runs in my family trust me. For now its every other day following the little plan that Foodie sent me. This is really exciting and I am looking forward to it. Angie is going to do it with me she just does not know it yet LOL. She made me quit the diet coke so now we will be even. Well almost, diet coke is SOOOO good! When I was about 20 minutes in my ipod played the song sexy back, lol. It made me laugh but it made me think…Hell yeah i’ll bring sexy back!
If you live in Utah or are going to be visiting in Sept. join me on this little venture! It would be so much fun to do as a group and I would love to meet you in person.
