We’re Goin’ Running!

So…um…at least I am.

I’m kind of a runner…at least I pretend to be. And I probably run about ten miles a week; that qualifies me as a real runner, right? 😉

I got into running the year

before I had Maelie…I loved to go for late night jogs in Kota Baru.

After I had her, I decided that to help me get back into shape (um, that’s questionable :)) I would run a 5k, and I literally registered for the first one I found online.

Thankfully it involved chocolate or I would have had zero motivation.

I r an it with Tobin

and a friend, and we had a good time. It was more than a little early, but the chocolate waiting for us at

the finish line made up for it.

:) And we got a nifty jacket/hoodie, so that was kinda fun, too.

But the course was extremely crowded, almost to the point of being dangerous, and I decided that I didn’ t wan

t to run it again this year.

Until last week.

I randomly decided that I couldn’t NOT do it… and so I registered.

The problem is that I can’t find anyone who will run it with me…so I’m facing a 5k in 19 days alone.

Well…alone, along with 14,999 other people I don’t know.

Unless you want to run it with me.




And to give you plenty of notice, I’m planning on the Chicago Marathon 2012.

You are welcome to join me.


I’m sure there will be plenty of pain and puking, but I totally plan on finishing it and getting that medal.

(Ok, I really need to make my bucket list, huh?)

    A marathon is my goal too. Not that I’ve ever done much to get there yet.

    • You should train with me! I think Alison is going to run it, too…we’d have fun. And it’s more fun to suffer with friends than alone, right? :)
