Monday, May 13, 2013 is a big day. Usually I’m good with the weekend; content to spend the days running errands, relaxing with the family – generally just having a great time. This weekend is a little different. I’m actually looking forward to this coming Monday because it’s the start of two new endeavors designed to kick my… well you know…
First, I joined the Walk to Run Challenge at the recreation center. It’s a program to help participants run their first 5K. I know…I know…I’ve already done two 5K’s, but I must admit my time was horrible. I think the fastest runners could have run the race, come back for me at the starting line and ran it again, by the time I got to the first mile. I’m determined to cut my time in half.
Second, is the Fattymustrunmarathon Challenge. This is a virtual group and our first “assignments” start on Monday. This year long challenge is a serious of challenges and support from women all over the world.
I think with the help of my virtual, in person support, AND my own will and determination, I will be ready for my next 5K, the 10K I have yet to sign up for and the half marathon that is already on my horizon for February 2014. For the first time in a while, I’m feeling – Monday, bring it on!
