Ok... .so I wanted to do the Phillies 5k, but registration was sold out before I could sign up. I was soooo excited to do it! I'd decided that I was going to try to run it (jog?), so I was really disappointed.
So, I decided that I'm going to train to run anyway. That is not the only 5k happening this year. I could even pick one that is for a real cause, not the vague "Phillies Charities" that theirs way. Seriously, what charities?
I looked online to see how a girl like me could be a "runner". Couch to 5k! In 9 easy (ha!) weeks I could become a runner. I was already starting to plateau doing the ellipical trainer... it was getting easy(ish). So what the hell? I'm one day short of completing week 2. Yesterday I was going to DIE. But I kept doing it. It's not supposed to be easy. If it was, everyone would do it.
I have blisters on my feet, calf pain, foot pain. But I'm going to finish this. I'm going to run a 5k. :)
