Oy - I am late getting this thing up.
Truthfully, I didn't want to post it at all. It's not impressive. It's almost embarrassingly crappy. But, I need the accountability, even if it is me posting to no one.
I set out to start running again. I should preface this by saying I am a TERRIBLE runner. Like, so bad the term "runner" is nearly inappropriate. Nonetheless, I get my fat butt out there, smack the pavement with my tired legs and feet, pant and chant with each passing block.
I signed up to run the Disney Star Wars Dark Side 5K (with Rea) and 10K with my sister. That gives me till April to be able to handle 10 kilometers at a pace better then 16 minutes/mile. Doable goal. Killer goal.
But I need to do more than that. I need to pushed harder. Two races that are more than 6 months away are not enough. So, I think I will post my monthly "runs." When I say "run," right now I mean sad combination of walk/run, favoring the walk.
I started my running life again the day the monsters went back to school. And I was successful for exactly one week. Then I became quite ill. And that killed my August stats. 3 runs. Not even 6 total miles. Ugh.
Wish me luck! I need it.
