A couple of weeks ago, Kasey, Matt and I got the crazy idea to run a 5K. Seriously, what came over us? What came over ME? If you know me, you know I am not ashamed to say that I am not a fan of running. Never really have been. But I decided that I wanted to prove to myself that I could do this.
This will be the first race for Kasey and me. We decided to do the first one up right, and registered for Disney’s Tower of Terror 5K in October. A 3.2 mile run through MGM (aka Hollywood Studios), at night, with an after party? Yes, please. We have also recruited a few other friends to join us, so we’re really looking forward to it.
Almost two weeks ago, I began training. To a seasoned runner, 3.2 miles is nothing, but for those of us who aren’t fans of running this task can’t be taken lightly. 🙂 Matt found a great plan for Kasey and me to follow. And, I’m happy to say, I completed week one on Saturday. Since this plan is only for 5 weeks, I am planning to do each week twice. If it gets too easy for me along the way, I’ll up the anty. Here’s the plan I’m using…kind of. I move Sunday’s assignment to Saturday, and even if it says to walk for 20 minutes I do a minimum of 30 minutes.
So…we’ll see how this goes. If all goes well, I plan to run the Give Kids The World 5K with Bob and Dawn in November. If you want to run either of these with us, feel free to register and let me know. The more the merrier! 🙂
