Spring into Summer 5K
I think I may have lost it. I officially registered to do a 5k in two months!! EEEKK!!! At the gym I go to, they sign up to do a 5K together each year as a group. A lot of people do it and it's apparently a fun time. For months now I've been wanting to get better at running. I really suck at it. It took a while, but at best I can run for 3 minutes without stopping. And it literally took me months and months to get to this point. I'm hoping by the time the 5k comes along I will be able to run for a longer period of time. I know I won't be able to run the whole thing, my goal is to finish in under 40 minutes. Something that I really think I can accomplish if I train really hard for the next 2 months. There are two women at the gym, who offered to stay with me the whole time. It really means a lot to me that they are willing to do this. Having someone encourage and push me is definitely going to help me finish the race. Even though I'm nervous and scared about this race, I'm also really excited and proud that I actually signed up for it!
