I Finished It This Time!

As my 13 year old is asking me how C25K is supposed to help us and my 9 year old is literally running circles around me, I thought I just might die.

Not quite, but almost.

Ohhh, to have the energy of a 9 or 13 year old.

I did Day 1 Week 1 of the C25K running program over. It pissed me off that I didn’t finish it the first time.

I was able to finish that last minute of running tonight.

I stopped for a split second, but then kept running. I only had 13 seconds left. It wasn’t going to beat me.

My pace was a little faster.

I was happy about that, until I realized that I’m actually running twice as slow as when I was in the Army.

That was a few years ago…..but that’s besides the point.

I’m happy. I feel good.

I can’t wait to wear that sparkly skirt!!!

First Run!

Week 1 Day 1 of the Couch 2 5K program.

4 27 12

It was tough. Not too tough, but much harder than walking, that’s for sure. And yes, you can all say, “duh” here.

My 9 year old son, Michael, ran with me. In fact, towards the end of the run, he was doing laps around me. Brat. ;)

I wasn’t able to finish the entire last minute of running. Other than that, it was good.

I’m going to keep plugging on.

I want to finish that Tinker Bell Half Marathon in January 2013!!

I’m Gonna Do It


I’ve always wanted to run a half marathon.

One of my best friends just asked me to do the Tinker Bell Half Marathon at Disneyland.

I said yes.

If nothing else, at least I get to wear a pretty, sparkly skirt and maybe a set of wings while I’m trying to kill myself.

It’s not till January 2013, so I have some time to get ready for it.

I have a lot of training to do.

Now, if only I could walk more than 2 miles without feeling like I’m going to die….
