Ive been training for a 5k for awhile using the Couch to 5 k program and I am so excited to say that I have signed up for a run! And not just any race.. but the most amazing 5k run! [This has not been proven but since its my first race it stands.. plus its pretty awesome looking.] Im going to be running the 5k Foam Fest in April with some of my friends!
My friends that I am running with are avid runners and ran Foam Fest last month. [They can attest to its greatness.] Last night I went with them to an event at the university and accidentally ran a 3 mile run. I didnt intend to run the race but I decided it would be good practice for Foam Fest. It turned out to be a ton of fun because the kids were there. Ryley and I ran the first half mile together and it cracked me up. I love that she has an interest in running.
I know some of yall are runners and that running a 5k sounds like a walk in the park – but I am not a runner. People say that running clears their head and they can think clearer but when I was running the only thing I was thinking was how much I hate running. Running and I dont get along but I am determined to like it and fully intend to run all of Foam Fest.
So to all my running friends – what do you love about running? What do you do to train for a run? I would love love love to hear your tips and tricks!
