I did it!! 5K here I come....????
Well, here is another thing I am going to throw out to cyberworld.....this morning was my official start of training for a 5K run. The Avera Race for the Cure is in May and I plan to run a 5K (for more information you can click here.)
I am hoping by sharing this information with all of you it will help me stay accountable and possible encourage some of you to join me in this challenge. I am stepping out of my box and comfort zone. I don't know if I can complete this goal. I do know that I have set a plan in place and I am going to give it my best effort. For those of you who may be interested in running a 5K, there is a really awesome plan called from couch to 5K at Cool Runnings.
As I was completing my first day of training this morning...I started thinking about a recent conversation I had with my 21 year old son. I was explaining to him that in life we need to have goals, remembering that to achieve our goals it typically requires planning, discipline, and often times sacrificing. So, as my children watch me work towards my goal of a 5K, I am modeling to them a life skill.
As, with most goals...the encouragement and support of others motivate us, so I will be popping in here with random blogs entries on how my training is going.
How about you...
What goals have you set for yourself?
How can I help motivate you?
Blessings on your day!
