I must be crazy!

Okay so it's official... I sent in my $14 check to enter myself into the Bel Air Town Run this year. I must be crazy... I am so NOT a runner. What am I thinking?? I must have bumped my head... for real.
So I asked myself Why? Why give up a perfectly good Sunday to run/walk a 5K race? Why... I guess to prove to myself that I CAN do it... to continue to motivate me to be active. I have been doing really good lately with exercise and eating well. I even have run a bit on the trail by our house.
And besides... a friend talked me into it!! She ran her first 5K a few weeks ago and is also going to do this race here in Bel Air. I figured she neeed the company... and I needed someone to at least start out with. Whether she and I finish together has yet to be seen... but I WILL finish!
I guess this means I should do some more running to train?? Boy does that sound odd coming out of my mouth... anyone want to come and cheer us on??

SQUUUUUEEEEEEAAAAAALLLL!! We are totally going to rock this girl. I am so proud of you for taking the leap. I know you can do it and we will do it together! Just remember to run slow to make the distance and then you can work on speed. I run very slooowwww. (Is my stretching of words annoying anybody but me yet??) I'll have to start emailing you to see how you are doing. Did I mention how proud I am of you??!!
