Remember, I’m posting non-crafty pics each week so you can get to know me a little more….
Don’t be fooled by this picture – I am not athletic – at all! A couple of years ago Kate convinced me to do a triathlon – then she bailed! Turned out to be a tough one, according to other people who actually do this sort of thing on a regular basis.
Anyways, you can read all about it HERE, back when I did a much better job of family blogging (it’s a pretty good post – I scanned it when I went to grab the picture).
So why am I bringing this up, 2 years after the fact?? Because I must have forgotten that I’m not an athlete – Today I’ll be running in my first-ever 5k – I don’t even like running – why am I doing this!! I haven’t trained – well actually, a couple of weeks ago when it was warm I ran the circle around our neighborhood, 0.9 miles, and had to stop several times to walk. I’ve probably done that 5 times – does that count as training??
My goal – to beat my mom – it’s her first 5k also and she doesn’t run – but she has a killer speed-walk thing going for her…..who will prevail?…….

Good Luck!! You are braver than me! I only run if something/someone is on fire!

Good luck, Mandy!
That’s funny. I just did my first 5K a few weeks ago. I’m not a runner either but I have started running a couple mornings a week to try and stay in shape now that I’m turning 30! 🙂
Mandy, I am running a 5K for Celiac disease May 22nd and haven’t done ANYTHING!!! I must start…. I must start… 🙂
I ran my first 5K last year a couple of days before I turned 50. I did it in 41 minutes and that was jogging and walking and wanting to lay down on the street and cry! 🙂
Good luck in your race~
Good luck! I ran two 5K’s last summer. Pretty fun. Good luck and keep us posted with the results.
