Forever ago I decided that I was going to train for a 5K. It seemed ridiculous, it was a little bit. But I did it. I ran 3-4 times each week on a 2 and 1/2 mile loop from my little trailer, back to my little trailer. I was hoping that in two months I'd look like this.
All slim and trim, but I'm afraid that was unrealistic. Instead I settled for unflattering horizontal stripes. Hooray for afterthoughts! Anyway, this is me and Courtney right before our run.
I did pretty bad really. It was blazing hot out, shoulda figured that when I signed up for a July 24th race, otherwise I have no real excuse. I did finish it and at my next 5K two weeks later, I took 1min/mile off my time on a much harder course. So that's been it for now. Two 5K's and two t-shirts. I am still running but I'm down to once or twice a week. Gotta step it up again before our trip to Florida. The countdown is on!
