5 by the 5th- February



AND run 4 out of 13 in 2013.  I had signed up for virtual 5K My Sorta Birthday 5K.  I went with the free version- mainly because I needed to do free ;).  I did get this GREAT bib and will be able to laminate it and add to the frame at a later date.  We have had some more crazy weather (snow twice this past weekend) so this was another treadmill one.  Was a little slower but I felt good after it was done.  I'm not a fast runner and I never will be (and that's okay).  For me, it is all about setting a goal and reaching that goal.  Unfortunately I did NOT get my chance to run today like I planned- I ended up with some stomach pains and not feeling well so figured I probably should not do the 6 mile run.  I have a meeting after school tomorrow and then I'll end up at Planet Fitness (which I joined last week).  I might try to do it on the Arc trainer- we will see :)  ETA: that did not happen either *sigh*


This is also my February run in my 5 by the 5th!

Someone once said the prize is not for the fastest but the one who finishes. You finished. You are right however, on one thing: you never were a fast runner. LOL Keep going! You are doing great!

ha ha :) That is my goal- to finish what I am starting. And to come to the understanding that it never ends (the journey).

I go to Planet Fitness as well. That ARC trainer is a beast. Definitely gets in a workout!

I agree with your dad! Doesn't matter how fast you are...just matters that you got out there in the first place :)

You're so right- it's not about being fast, but about setting goals and going after them. Glad you're part of the series!
