Those of you that know me personally know that I am not a fan of running. Oh, I'm a HUGE fan of the cute running half pants with my matching running top and cute, pink running shoes. However, running was designed by the devil himself, and I absolutely hate it.
So I obviously had to run a 5K.
I found myself in State Center, with my dear sister and her relatives, for the Rose Festival 5K walk/run. (Admittedly, I took the walk/run part to heart and did, in fact, walk some portions. So sue me.)
The route wound all over the place, which is to be expected in such a small town, but it was also filled with people cheering the competitors on, passing out water, snapping photos- it was overall an incredible experience!
And, drum roll please......
I actually won a medal in something sports related!! This boost of confidence led to even more running this week at the West High track while the baby brother had his own workout.
|Look at all the sweatiness :)|
With all this running, I've gained my new mantra. "Breathe. Move your Legs." The only catch is you have to say it to the tune of Justin Timberlake's "Dance. Don't hold the wall." (Do it, you'll laugh.)
Also, SUPER confidence booster of the week (or several, rather) was visiting State Center in my high wasted shorts and crop top and having all my old friends stopping me and telling me how much tinier I looked.
|Woot freaking woot!!!|
Still trying to build up my endurance for this competition in July, so wish me luck!!
Until we sweat again!!
