I met my friends Allison & Elisabeth for dinner and Sex and the City last night, and guess what?
We nailed down the date for my first 5k. Elisabeth is already a runner, and she already does half-marathons and triathalons, so I’m way, way behind her. But Allison will start training just like me, since she’s not a runner already.
It goes like this: I start the Cool Runnings Couch to 5k program in August when I go back to school. I should be weighing under 200 around that time (fingers crossed!)
I’ll spend the fall getting through the program. Then?
12/13/08: RDV Sportsplex 5k Reindeer Run
01/24/09: Seasons 52 Park Avenue 5k (Park Ave is my second home… went to college over there!)
02/07/09: Lady Track Shack 5k (I hear this is great for beginners since it’s all women)
02/21/09: House of Hope Run Around the Pines 5k
If I’m not ready in December or January, fine. But I will definitely run the February races.
Woohoo! I’m all fired up. (Sitting here on the couch, not sweating.)
