Remember the time I vowed I would never run a 5K again?? Yeah, I remember it too. Especially after rereading this post. That was a year and a half ago and I haven't forgotten. BUT I'm doing it (why, oh why do I think torturing myself is fun?). In May I will run a 5K with my daughter (yes, this is all her fault). I am making this announcement so I can't talk myself out of it (but maybe you can talk me out of it). This time I will train better. I will run 4 times a week (or three....probably only two), I will eat healthier (unless my mom makes cookies at which point I will have three or four spoonfuls of cookie dough....Mmmmm cookie dough), and I will go to bed before..........1 am (that's good, right?).
In all seriousness, this run is to support my sister and her husband who recently lost their son to Trisomy 18. She carried him full term (tough little guy) and he lived 28 hours. He was the sweetest little angel. This run benefits Angel Babies, a support group that helps parents dealing with stillbirth, miscarriage, & infant loss. It is an amazing organization that really helped my sister through the hardest time in her life.
For my Fresno peeps, if you want to join in the "fun" run, it takes place Saturday, May 7th at Woodward park. I think I'm going to start "training" at the Clovis East track a couple nights a week. If anyone is interested in training with us, email me and I'll give you the details.
I can do this, I can do this (me and running are long time enemies so I have to give myself a pep talk).
