Back on Track

Today was the first day that I have attempted to get back on track for C25K. I know I posted awhile ago that I was going to do so, but I managed to injure my foot in a mad dash through a parking lot. I must give credit to my awesome husband who chased me with his hands covered in wet polyurethane. At any rate, I wasn't wearing good shoes and I wasn't wearing my orthotics and I don't know what I did exactly but the top of my foot hurt for about 3 weeks after.

Well, now it feels better. So I decided to gear up and get my ass back outside. I bought some running shorts, which I've never owned before, and I really like them! They actually have room in them for people to have some junk in the trunk! New stuff always helps push me to do something with it. I can't be dressed in fancy new running clothes and not go running!

Anyway, I decided to just walk today to get back in the habit. I figured if I had a destination I would walk further (which was true) so I took off down a side road to find the trail that I like to go to. Normally I drive there, so I thought I'd see if I could walk there. I didn't find it, but I did find a playground that I remember my mom bringing my siblings and me to when we were kids. It's especially grand with lots of places to hide and crawl. I have lofty plans to take nephews there in the future!

So, I'm glad that I got back out and am starting to work on this again. I was thinking about a goal I can make, and I thought it might be fun to put together a team for Race for the Cure. I think between Paul and I there are four women in our immediate and extended families that have battled breast cancer and it just seems like we should support it. So, if anyone else is interested in being on a team, let me know and I'll start putting it together!

  1. I would join a team depending on how long the run is. I'm not in full marathon shape.

  2. I'm looking at the information and there are several races:

    I think I would opt probably for the untimed co-ed 5k run at 7:45 or the untimed 5k walk at 9.

    I just talked to someone too and they said it costs $30 for each entry.
