A friend and I started running last week. We’re doing the Couch Potato to 5K plan…
I ran track in high school. Not well, mind you. A friend dared me. Well, actually, he said, “I bet you can’t run a mile.” And I joined the track team to prove him wrong. I never won a race. But I perservered. I ran. And ran and ran.
That guy? He married a triathelete. I guess he just liked girls who ran.
After high school, I never ran again.
But I’m very proud of myself. I went 1-3/4 miles today.
There’s a charity 5K in June that lots of my friends are signed up for. I’m thinking about doing it.
I’m either optimistic or crazy.
Note: The picture is not me or my friend. We just wish we could look happy and calm (not to mention in perfect shape) like that when we run!
