So I am going to run a marathon...

Okay, marathon is a bit misleading.

Today I registered and paid to run the 5K at the Mayo Midnight Marathon on June 22nd.

Quite honestly, the thought of running 5k makes me want to yak.  But I am a goal setter and I need something to work towards.  I won't be running it all alone either; my friends that are coming to the Yukon in June will be joining me!

I am now up to running for 10 minutes at a time and yesterday I wanted to quit so badly while running the second 10 minute stint.  Thankfully, my running partner kept yelling at me and that kept me going. 

Yesterday was a 5m warm up walk, 10min run, 3min walk, 10min run and then 5 min cool down walk.  So 33 minutes total and I covered just over 4km in that time.  As soon as the roads are clear I will start running outside.

Never in my wildest dreams did I think I would run.  Much less register to run a 5k.

These are great places to shop for baby bath gift sets so that you don’t have to spend a load of money. You can shop for many kids and save money in the long run when you buy these types of baby bath gift sets. This is especially good for aunts, uncles and even grandparents who often find themselves shopping for several sets of kids.
