So You Think You Can RUN???

When I started this journey, I set a few goals...certain things I wanted to do...milestones, if you will. One of those milestones was to eventually run a 5K race. That's right, A 5K or 3.1 miles!! Yikes!! What the crap was I thinking???

Anyway a couple of months ago, I made the decision that I would start officially training for this run. I even started a seperate blog to keep track of my "5K run" training etc. I decided I would take part in The CIBC Run For The Cure on Sunday October 4, 2009!!

Well, October 4th is right around the corner and I AM SO NERVOUS!! I don't feel like I'm ready. I have been following the C25K or "Couch to 5 K" training plan. I found it tough as nails but effective. Even after 4 weeks of training, I am still a "struggling runner". Truth be told, I haven't been as disciplined as I should have been with the training. I really dislike running - maybe I haven't yet found my groove where running is concerned. It is tough, but I've committed, so I'm sticking with it!!

One of my girlfriends volunteered to help me get set up and registered for the run. I was very excited to get started. now I'm full of nerves. Gotta get it together! With the upcoming race only about 5/6 weeks away, the doubts are "TRYING" to creep in - but I won't let them.

So why this post?

I put this out there before and a few of you had expressed interest in running as a team and/or running the 5K with me. If any of you are interested or still interested, please send me an email to or leave a comment on this post with your contact (email address) info. I just want to get as much info as possible before setting things up (registration etc.) with my girlfriend. PLEASE LET ME KNOW BY FRIDAY AUGUST 28, 2009!! Thanks!!

That's it for now...thanks.

Until next time....

Joania (2KMINE!!!)

I got to give it to you.

Keep up the good work. Back in the day I use to enjoy running but now I don't think so.

I believe you got it right. Finish what you start.

It's going to be a personal battle more than anything else.

Good Luck,
