So I am about to type something I never thought I would. I have started running. Yes you may all wake up from your shock. If you know me at all you know I do not run. I could be being chased by a bear and I don't know if I would run. It is just not my thing. Never has been. Back in elementary school when you had to run the mile I would do everything I could to get out of it. And now I am crazily running in the mornings. My neighbor and I started walking 3 days a week at 5:15 in the mornings. It was a chance for us to talk and also get some exercise. We have really enjoyed it. Well she mentioned last week that she has always wanted to run a 5K. I admit it always something I have wanted to do as well but that whole I don't run thing has always gotten in the way. I agreed to do it with her. So we started Monday. I have to admit I struggled. Didn't quite make it on all the reps but I pushed through and did it! I was so sore yesterday. Today was better. I ran a little further and I am not nearly as sore. So maybe just maybe I can do this. I am making no promises but I am going to give it a go. Matt is also running the other mornings that I am not. He has recently lost over 35 pounds through diet and now he is starting exercise to keep it going. I am so proud of him. I have to keep up I guess!! So I will try to keep you updated on my progress. I had Matt take a picture before I headed out this morning as proof that I am doing this.
