I have the most helpfulest (yes, I know that's not a real word but it's the only one that works here) blog friends and I was so encouraged with all of the responses when I asked whether I should walk or "run" the 5K in Chicago. Thank you!
I went to the gym this afternoon and did a 5K on the treadmill, just to get a baseline for where I am now. The answer is...my numbers were pretty pathetic. It took me just under an hour, 58 minutes and 33 seconds to be exact, to do 3.2 miles. I'm not being down on myself about this...I'm sooo glad I got off my "buts" and did it. I burned a whole lot of calories and feel fantastic.
I am so excited to have a concrete goal to strive for, and I can't wait for the BOOBS 5K in September!
