Running a 10k – What the hell have I done?

I did it. I actually did it.

I signed up for a 10k.

Just let that sink in. I’ll wait.

6.2 MILES! My jiggle has never bounced that far before.

Ducks fly around in my stomach at the mere thought of that much running. Why ducks? Well, bats are scary and butterflies don’t make me think of so much anxiety that all you want to do is throw yourself into a Buffy marathon for the next 24 to 48 hours. Because that’s totally what I’m feeling. I also had a duck for company on my first day of running. It was just the two of us in the park until he found a girlfriend and left me to hobble my way through the rest of the workout.

Not cool, Mr. Duck.

I did actually complete the first day of Couch to 10k training, even without flying animals for company.

C210K Week 1 Day 1

IMG_2354-1This selfie brought to you by the torrential downpour that I had to run through. I wish I could say it’s sweat running down my face. Alas, it is not. Maybe next time.

No downpour for the second day, just the looming threat of one. No selfie either. Remind me to never use that word again.

C210K Week 1 Day 2

Now for the very best part – the actual race that I’ll be running!

Screenshot (20)If you can’t read that for some reason, it says the Chocoholic Frolic.

I run the risk of sounding like Chandler, but could there BE a more perfect race for me to run?!

I can’t stop saying the name in my head because it’s just that awesome. It rhymes! Not only is the name amazing, but I get goodies!

Screenshot (21)There aren’t many things I love more than free things – or rather, things that I paid for that just seem free when I get them. Who cares. It’s going to be awesome.

Linking up with KTJ and Samantha for non-scale victories!
