I Nearly Gave Myself Whiplash With This One.

Remember how I started the C25K program?

Remember how I said that I wasn’t planning on doing a 5K, that my only goal was to finish the program?

Yeah, about that…

I changed my mind…again.

I will be doing the Blogher 5K in New York’s Central Park this August*, because how great will THAT be, to do a 5K in one of the most fabulous places in the entire world?

Go big or go home, you know?

Hold me.

*With one of my roomies, Michelle. Anyone else doing it?

    LOL "Hold me"!!!!!!!

    I don't know if you remember, but last summer when I was unemployed I tried doing the couch to 5K thing. I got a stop watch and gear and went to the track all of the time. But my shins gave out on me and it really hurt so I stopped.

    I wish I could be a runner…I'm just not. *shrug*

    YOU can do it though!!!!!

    I thought we were going to blogher to HAVE FUN!!!
    Running does not equal fun, although I have considered doing that program……

    Maybe I will drink a mimosa while watching you and Michelle run….

    You can totally collapse into a nice cold glass of vodka at my house afterwards, and by afterwards I mean a taxi ride to the airport, a flight to nola, a couple drinks of bourbon street, my gps getting us lost in nola then a drive to my house where the vodka will be waiting.

    You can do it!!! I know it seems terrifying, but you'll be so proud of yourself when you cross that finish line 🙂

    That does sound exciting!!

    I got some exercise yesterday for the first time in about a year, and I feel pretty good today. I'm hoping to keep it up !
