See SG Run Walk & Not Pass Out

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.

I am right there along with you. My chubby butt needs to learn to walk and have some endurance and then move on to the whole run thing. We can both do it, I know! We can swap tips if we find anything helpful while learning together :)

You can totally do it :)It's soo strange maybe im just not Up to the times with my city, but it doesnt seem like we have alot of "Marathon" or walkatons or anything, When the time comes that im more in shape, Im going to join one as well, But Until then Im working on getting fit so im able to do those :) what an accomplishment it would be!! I have faith in your girl you inspire me about these Runs/walks!

Andrea said...

Good for you! I'm doing my first 5K in Feb. I guess I should start training! You will do great!

Ok just to say that i am so glad that I made it to best friend status! I can't go fast so for some of these walks you might have to slow down for ME because I have a bad back and feet! So no worries!
