5K or BUST

Okay so I'm not so much joking about that. I'm really going to run a 5K, yeah quit rereading that, I am really going to do it. I guess I should say, I am really going to participate in a 5K it might be walking but I'm going to do it. Levi's been after me to do it for a long time and I've always told him no way. Well a friend of mine has done some 1/2 marathons and I just got to thinking more about it. So, this week was my week to start training. My friend Xuan and I are going to do it together. Levi and our friend Brad, correction B-RAD are also going to run it...right guys? So I've got this training plan or whatever which you work up your endurance. So I did my little thing at the gym today. Tonight we had band practice and the church is like walking distance from our house, maybe a mile. I don't know. So, I told Levi I was going to walk/run to and from. He and the kids decided to walk with me. So, I decide I'm going to jog home. Well, I told some of the band I was doing it. I hesitated whether to tell anyone aside from Levi and Xuan because I didn't want to be embarassed or feel like a failure if I don't follow through. I know the motivation to follow through after telling them about it but I guess my brain works backwards. I told anyway. Okay onto the good part. So, I ran almost all the way. I stopped for a distance of 5 trees (these little trees line the main road that I was running on). I get to the entrance of our neighborhood and walk. Then I alternate until I get to our street. Then I start feeling kind of weird and start gagging. Dadgum if I don't keep gagging until I throw up. It wasn't a large amount, I know gross for a blog. Sorry. I walk in and tell Levi and he just busts a gut laughing at me. Thanks Mr. Considerate. I really felt good about it.

On a side note, Xuan took me to a movie tonight, we saw, "Baby Momma." It was funny!! I really like my times with Xuan, they're always fun!

That's awesome! I'm proud of you! Wish I could be there to cheer you on. I'm in the midst (about half-way through) of training for a 1/2 marathon. It's June 1st in Steamboat. At this point, I question whether or not I'll make it - but I am DETERMINED to finish it! When is your race?
