Me, A Runner?

Sunday, March 11, 2012

My bunny friends may be shocked but I have decided to run MY FIRST RACE EVER! A 5k in 2 weeks.... and no, Hope, I do not plan on driving it! ;-) While fitness is truly one of my greatest passions in life, running never has been. Still, I think it would be exciting to join together with lots of other people excited about fitness for an event. I also like the idea of setting a goal for myself and achieving it. A final motivator is that both hubby and I have always wanted to run in one of the Disney marathons, and so we thought running in some shorter races first would be good training. Oh, and it is stroller friendly! So the whole family is coming! I had been concerned about my husband, who has not exercised more than 20 or 30 min total cardio per week for the last couple weeks. Due to his excitement of the race, he has now started training hard! Even my kids are training (although I think only my 7 yr old son can keep up with us... the other 2 will mostly ride in the stroller).

Gotta go to the gym now to finish up my exercise goals for last week. I'll be back later to post goals for the new week!

Have a wonderful Sunday!
