#1 Run in a Race

I did it, now I just have to figure out how I am going to do it. I registered for the Sound to Narrows 5k on June 11th.

Yes, yes I know that 5k is just over 3 miles says the nagging cross – country runner of my previous self. But that was a loong time ago.

This one on my 35 Things to do when I Am 35 list took me a while to confront – and its been something that I have wanted to do for a long time. But life gets busy, you have a couple kids….

So with the birthday right around he corner the race is technically after my 35th year – but no one here is a stickler for rules,right?

The big kick to action was a realization of my recent weight gain. Since starting my current job under 3 years ago I have gained forty pounds!?!? Yikes! I don’t know what that says about my job, or my age, or what. But I’ve started a training program, we’ve joined the YMCA, and plan to kick ass at the run.
