something to look forward to

Thursday, July 12, 2018

I bought my ticket for this 5k back in February. It starts with 15 minutes of yoga followed by a 5k thru a winery and ends with a commemorative wine glass and t-shirt. I have 4 friends who are joining in the fun and I’ve been excited for months! And, it’s Sunday. I just hurt my back Tuesday and finally today have been able to sit and walk. I’ve been devestated thinking that I won’t be able to participate the way I wanted to. But, I’m still hopeful that between Friday and Saturday, I will be OK in time. Then I started thinking...why not find another 5k to put on a calendar to look forward to? So I have a list of many that I am interested in, and I believe I will be able to complete 6 of them. My goal is to participate in at least one 5k a month thru the end of the year. And who knows, maybe 2019 will be the 5k every month challenge!

    Oh that sounds so fun! I bet you'll be okay.

    I usually have a 5K or 10K on my calendar once or twice a month. It's a great motivator and a lot of them have a fun theme. If you don't mind running in the cold, the Hot Chocolate 5K is fun. They have them in many cities. Some are in the fall so you could get lucky and skip the cold. I'm near Chicago so it's usually cold!

    Good luck!!!
