So I have decided that I would like to be a runner. So what am I going to do? Run.
So as a sub section of my blog I will attempt to record things and write about the experience and basically just blog the overall process and growth throughout this ordeal.
So I have made several goals related to this running endeavor: here they are
- I will lose 30 lbs by Thanksgiving (2010)
- I will no longer drink soda or eat fast food
- I will not take second servings and I will eat smaller portions and more slowly along with snacking on healthy foods throughout the day
- Then: I will run a 5k November 14
These are just my fall goals, running/health wise. Naturally, I will also be training for that 5k considering that I am no where NEAR ready at this moment to run.
So I plan on starting training on August 16th, official training at least because I’ll probably hit the gym a few time before then. I have officially registered for the Silver Strand Half Marathon and 5k. I will, of course, be running the 5k because I would die running a half marathon. I will be running it with my stepmom and good news is that it only cost $40….which includes them mailing my number and shirt to me before the race so I don’t have to deal with the madness the night before. I will spend the weekend with Dad and Monica in San Diego and getting up early and running! Crazy!
I’m doing an 8 week training plan, which doesn’t look too strenuous and I even have running shoes to break in! Hooray! So it looks like it’s going to be a fantastic experience, though I am more optimistic than normal, so we shall see! Here goes nothing!
