Sooo tired....

I'm a little delirous while typing this so sorry for any mistakes. It's only 8:30 but it feels like midnight. I need some sleep! Anyway, I started my training back around the first of January. Let me just tell don't know anything about cold weather till you try to run in it!!! I HATE cold weather. I MAKE myself get out there and run. I started doing a Couch to 5k training program. I run when I can and most of the time I run after the kids go to the the myself....around my neighborhood. There is nothing more boring than running in the dark around the neighborhood about 10 times!!! BOOOORING!!!! On the weekends I get to run during the day and down the street which is fun. The other day I actually went running WITH someone. A couple of girls from church invited me over to run with them. Let me tell ya....I ran 4.18 miles (without stopping)!!! I was soooo excited!!! A month ago I NEVER thought I would see the day that I could run that far!!! It's got my confidence level up so I went ahead and committed to running the Azalea Trail Run 10k race the end of March. YIKES!!!!

I just sent out an email to friends and family asking for donations to the run. I have set a goal of $1,500 this year. I'm thinking that if money doesn't start coming in soon I may have to start baking and selling brownies or something (hmmmmmm, not sure people would WANT to buy any of my cooking though).

I've been pretty bummed this week. The biggest reason is Chris is out of town. It's lonely around here without him. We all miss him so much when he isn't around. Also, with Chris gone, I haven't been doing any training. That is a WHOLE week of running I'm going to miss...and after such a good run last Sunday. BUT....I'll get back on track next week.....

Ok, it's 9pm. This old lady is hitting the sack!!! I'm going to try and post some pictures from last year relay on here soon......

Run for the Reason
