I'm thinking that by writing this down, in front of everyone, that it will force me to follow through with this.
Last summer, I had built my way up to running 4 miles, then some things happened and my running fell way off. Okay, my running stopped altogether. I am fortunate (or unfortunate, depending on how you look at it) to be in a Sunday School class full of runners who talk about it all the time and make you want to run as well. So one of those friends and I decided to do the following runs this next year.
5k on January 30: Groundhog Day Run
This 5k is all underground, in the caves of KC.
10k on April 2: Rock the Parkway
This 10k winds around Ward Parkway.
Half-marathon on June 4: Hospital Hill
This is the GrandDaddy of all races.
Now, dear readers, hold me to this. Make me do it. For the sake of my genetically high blood pressure and (slightly) high cholesterol, make me do it.
