This Weekend Muscle Man's Best buddy is in town from Michigan. Which means I am on solo Little Stud duty...sort of. Tomorrow morning I will depart ALONE 3 miles down the road to the High School we do intervals on for a 5K Run (Fun run/walk). Totally low key.. This is not the race that Muscle Man and I have been training for, that is next weekend. But how could I pass up a 5K, practically in my back yard, when the money benefits the Cross Country team?? I can't... I have been toying with signing up for this race for months, today as I took an unplanned rest day I knew I was IN...
My Last 5K I looked like this....
Easton was about 6 months old and I was working on shedding the baby weight. I signed up for the Race for the Cure 5K in June 2008. At the time I was 45lbs heavier than I am now, it is easy to hide weight on a 6'0 frame... I STRUGGLED to run for 5K. My goal for that race was to run without stopping to walk and finish in under 30 minutes, we finished in 29:33.
Above is what I looked like exactly 1 year later... And just weeks prior to running 26.2 miles!! AMAZING what can happen in one year. It Lifts My Soul to think about how much I have changed physically, mentally and spiritually this past year. And much of that positive change can be associated to RUNNING..
I got ME back! The ME I am proud to show to the world. The ME that is silly enough to think that I can shave over 7 minutes off my 5K time. ME...the athlete!! Off to bed to get my SLEEP. Tomorrow it is the the ultimate match-up
New ME vs. 5K
Who do you think will win??
