so i decided to not get all stressed out about running a mile. im not even going to think about it right now. as i mentioned before, i had a goal of doing one 5k a month during the non-winter months. sadly, all the ones i want to do are all about a week apart. my first instinct was to throw in the towel. how the heck can my chubby butt walk three 5ks in 2 weeks?? i may not be a fitness expert but i know its NOT by eating HONEY straight from the jar! (mmmmm.....honey)
endurance. i want endurance. and not just the kind that will keep my feet moving....i want mental and emotional endurance. losing 100 lb is not for sissies. its not for towel throwers! i
can will do it!
Smasher Girl's 3 5Ks in 2 Weeks Challenge
Sunday, May 20th: March of Dimes Run for Babies
this is for research for things like still birth, miscarriage, premies, birth defects, infant death, etc. two of my best friends and i have all gone through experiences like this, so its close to my heart.
Saturday, May 26th: Sunset House 5K
this is an amazing place. it is a hospice home that offers comfort and price is not a factor! this is also very close to my heart.
Saturday, June 2nd: Stroll For Strong Kids
this supports a local children's hospital. its one of the best in the country. i hope i never need to use it, but if i do, im so glad its there.
now all thats left to do is recruit people to do it with me (chubby slow people preferred). and maybe get some sponsors. 3 5ks in 2 weeks wont just shrink my butt....it will also shrink my bank account!
and you know how i said i wasnt going to worry about running? thats true. really. but a girl can dream, cant she? here's my dream....
there is a half marathon in the adirondacks in september 2012.
that's all im saying.... there IS one...
and i plan on being there. even if its just to pass out drinks and cheer from the sidelines. but maybe....just maybe.....
i will cross the finish line.
