run run as fast as you can...

well here it is. 

Here is the post that I tell you I have started to run 

I actually was thinking, don't tell people. 
I think I thought if I don't tell people they won't know if I have failed.
(when I quit)

WHAT! What kind of crazy talk is that. 

YUP,  I am so freakin' hard on myself. 

I am turning over a new leaf. 
I am sick of failing at EXERCISE.

I am running, We started last week. 

We, is my amazing husband (Who HATES running)
he is running with me. 
Pushing me. 

It is lovely. 

I am loving it. 

I am looking for  5k to do in October. 
I am going to sign up for a race and pay for it so that 
I will continue on. 

I have some crazy pink running shoes 
and am running with my iphone strapped to my arm. 
(My kids were totally laughing at me with my phone arm band thingy....) 

Couch to 5K runner is the app we are using. 

Dom has no desire to actually run the 5k he
just wants me to reach a goal that I have set. 

I have had a goal of running a 
5 K 
half marathon
& a marathon
 for as long as I can remember. 

So I am going to start little and work up. 

I actually have to say I am excited. 
Excited to RUN, Reach a goal and show my kids that hard work pays off. 
That you can set a goal and achieve it. 

I may have also been slightly motivated by my 9 year old niece who is
running 5 K (s) 
yup, I certainly didn't want to be shown up by a 9 year old. 

So, I said it. 

there it is out there for the entire world to see. 

Run, Run as fast as you can...

I love your honesty. I think we all think the same thing. "Keep your mouth shut and no one will know when you don't follow through!" HA! You are not alone lady. Miss seeing you and hope to make it to the Bible study at least once or so...
