i did something crazy yesterday. 

i signed up for a 5k


i keep asking myself that question. 

i hated running when i was younger. heck i hated walking too much. i loved being outside but i was perfectly happy to be sedentary while doing it. 

now i run/walk on the treadmill every day and i'm signing up for a 5k?

i have 10 weeks to prepare. i'm excited but also nervous. i mean there are going to be some fast, REAL runners running with me that day. there is also a half marathon going on at the same time. 

the first winner of the half marathon ran 13 miles quicker than i can run 3 right now. 

but that's OK. i'm not doing it to be the fastest or the best. i'm just doing it. 

which is more than i used to do! 

i'll be shaking in a corner until it's over if you need to find me ;)
