Running is a singular form of torture to be lumped in with water boarding and putting slivers underneath toenails. I have not liked to run since I was a child and hit my first major growth spurt. At that point I became awkward and my shins hurt all the time and running suddenly seemed like a bad idea.
I started to hate it less in Jr High when I ran 800s for track ~ but never as an adult. Well, no time to change like the present. Today’s Something New is that I signed up for a 5k.
Run for Change is to support the 20th Anniversary of Penny Harvest, a New York based children’s charity that helps empower children through their own good works. Seems like a good enough cause. I like kids.
My goal is to raise $200 on top of the goal to make it 5 Kilometers with out stopping, puking, or passing out. If you click that little link there & then the “Donate Now” button on my page it’ll tell you what your money can do:
The plan is to do a modified version of the Couch to 5k training program. The first workout will be Something New some time this week. Pray for the preservation of my knees.
