My Running Story
In January of 2010, I was sitting at my computer and decided that I wanted to start running. Literally, it was just like that. I knew the health benefits and all that good stuff. I looked at Matt and said "I want to start running." I researched different running plans and found http://www.c25k.com/. I went that day in the middle of a snowfall. It was exactly what I needed to build up to 3 miles. It wasn't easy....I'm definetely not blessed with the running gene. Running is HARD WORK for me.
I had just gotten to the 3 mile mark when my step mom passed away. Running was pushed to the side for the better part of almost a year.
After a couple non running related injuries, I decided to hop on a treadmill in May of 2011 and just see what I could do. I BLEW through 3.1 miles like it was nothin'!! I dont use any running plans now; I just make a goal for myself and try to do it.
My first official race is on July 9th, 2011. It's a 5k and I'm nervous/scared. It's not so much the distance, it's just that I haven't actually ran in a race before. Wish me luck!!
