I'm Running My First 5K.....

   
I'm convinced that some people are just born runners--I'm not one of them. Take for example my friend Amanda, she's training for a marathon and every weekend she runs like 10 miles. I don't consider myself to be out of shape...but I couldn't run 10 miles even if I were being chased by a wild animal. Ok, maybe I exaggerate, but I guess I just get bored running. Well...my hubby recently signed us up to run a 5K...AND it's a month away. We're doing the 13.1 in Fort Lauderdale, Fl that will benefit World Vision. I really want to be able to run the whole thing (without walking) so I'm doing the Dunkin Donuts Smart Zero to 5K Plan (unfortunately it doesn't consist of eating a glazed donut each day...I wish!) It's suppose to be an easy training program to help you get ready to run a 5K. This past Sunday was my first day. So in case you're in the same boat as I am or maybe thinking about running a 5K here's a link to the program. (oh...and they'll be many pics to come)
