I've actually been wanting to do one since I started running last July but this time I've actually registered! I'm so excited (and nervous)!!
In fact, I may be running my first 5k June 3 as there will be a Race for the Cure in Madison. I would really like to do this one, but I'm nervous about going alone and making a fool of myself. I really want to though; I just need to work up the courage!
I've also found quite a few more in my area that I'm interested in, including one that's only a few miles from my house.
The only one I've officially registered for is the one in August. I am so excited about training for the race! Yay!
Man, I am so jealous. <-- (Me, green with envy but still happy for you)
Discovering that I couldn't run anymore was one of my wake-up calls that it was really time to do something about my weight. It's funny: I hated running as a child, and I was certainly not interested in running once it was optional, not part of a gym class, but now that I know that the option isn't there it's the one thing I long to do more than anything else.
I'd rather be able to run around the block then eat a banana cream pie, and that says a lot! But, enough about me...
YOU are great, and I'm sure that you'll do great in the race!
The things I believe:
Cal in < Cal out = weight loss
All foods can fit into a healthy diet, some just need to be in smaller portions.
Variety is the spice of life: eat a new dish, play a new game, or go to a new place every week.
I have the Race for the Cure registration form printed out.
Deep breath.........now I just have to fill it out, write the check and pop it in the mail!
Thanks for all the kind comments and encouragement! You guys are the best!
