Do you think I need new running shoes?
I've been inspired to attempt to run a 5K by a friend and fellow blogger, Erin. Erin has been working so hard and she's amazing.
I've walked in 5K's, but I've never ran in them. In high school, I was on the pom squad and I could run 2 miles in 15 minutes, but those days are long gone. When I try to run now, it feels like I have a caboose behind me jiggling up and down.
Road to the 5K
1. Set a deadline. I'd like to run the Race for the Cure in Memphis on October 31, 2009. That gives me 14 weeks from this Saturday.
2. Buy a new pair of running shoes. Now, this is the dilemma. I can't find any I like; so, that's why the silver and pink ones remain. I do have a $10 off coupon at Dick's Sporting Goods. What do you think of these or these?
3. Start training. I found a great 6 week guide to running a 5K; so, I am going to try that out since I have a few weeks to spare.
I'm not sure if I'll start today because it's been raining off and on all day, but let the training begin! (Ok, now this means I have to be accountable to all of you...YIKES)
