From exercising to training

I just took the big step today and signed up for my very first 5k run!  I am so excited and nervous all at the same time!  I know I can do it because I am now walking/running 3.1 miles every time I do the C25k.  After the session is over I complete the distance and when I get to 3.1 miles I stop.  I want to be sure I can go the distance!

So now my exercising has now switched to training!  I figured if I signed up it would keep me honest and I would keep going and not quit!I spent $25 on this thing so now I have to keep going!

By doing this I am not looking to be the fastest, I just want to run the race.  You never know what you can do if you don't ever try!  I was always the girl that complained and never tried anything...not anymore.  I am doing something about it!

So now I have until May 7th to train my butt off!


  1. Hi Kristina! I found your blog through Mom Blogs. Just wanted to say congratulations on signing up for the 5K! I'm sure you'll do great! Good luck with your training.

  2. Hi Carey! Thank you so much for reading and for the encouragement! I am very nervous but figured what the heck?!
