I have never been a big runner. I wish I did something fun in high school like track and field, but nope I wasn't very sporty. I tried out for basketball, but that didn't work out too well. I wish I did cheering, but I was too shy. I even regret never taking band or chorus. I wish I could sing, but nope I wasn't blessed with that. I'd also love to take dance lessons, but I will have to stick with zumba for now.
Well, it is never too late! No, I am not going to play basketball, buy a piano, or take a dance class. I have decided this year I am going to give running a try. I am lucky to live near a great air force base and it just so happens that the air force marathon is held here every year. If we move and I have not participated in this wonderful marathon I know I will regret it and will be so sorry I never did it. I am starting out with baby steps. I am not going to go all out and run the full or half. I am going to start with a 5K. Then maybe next year do a 10K. Who knows, maybe I will skip the 5K and do the 10K this year. My mom and I have planned to do it together, so I am looking forward to getting our metal together. (Everyone gets one- even the 5K runners) :O) I don't have many awards besides good grade awards from school, so this will be exciting!! :O)
I just bought this with some birthday money.
I learned about a neat running program for non runners like myself. It is called couch to 5K. You can read about it, just click HERE.
Wish me luck!!! :O)
