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.
