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?…….
