The Date is set!
That's right, I have my date for my first 5K! April 10th, 2010. There is a 5K in Beulah, aka where I live! So let the training begin. Please anyone out there that runs give me any pointers for training for a 5K. I have never ran before, what goals should I set for training? How long should I expect myself to be able to run to complete a 5K? I hope I don't fizz out on this because as of right now I"m pretty excited! I have no illusions of finishing anywhere near the top, but I do have hopes of finishing! Woo! Dasani! This couldn't come at a better time too because I stepped on the scale last night, after noticing that my new pants from Christmas were a little tight, and I did not like what I was seeing. I'm back to 211 pounds. :( My goal is 190-195, fingers crossed I can make it and keep it there. For someone like myself that has NEVER struggled with weight, I now see how much of a fight it can really be. YOU'RE MY BOY BLUE!
