I did it, I signed up for my first 5k! In less than two weeks I'll be running 3.2 miles in Charlotte's Race for the Cure. I'm very excited that my first race is for such a great cause and I'll be running in memory of my husband's grandmother.
Training has gone well and I never though back in May that I'd be running 3 miles with out issue. I never thought I'd be running one mile, but I stuck to my training program and enjoy running. I don't exactly enjoy 3 miles but 1.5-2 miles in the mornings is refreshing (most of the time.)
Big props to Couch to 5k for their training program! They made a non-runner (me) into somebody that is enjoying running. Can't say I'll ever have the desire to do a 1/2 marathon or full, but getting out for 30 minutes or so to clear my head and get the heart pumping is good!
I'll let you know how the race goes...not expecting a fast time, just want to run it and finish it. Wish me luck...
