Next stop... 10K Run

March 5th, 2012 at 09:23 pm

My friends got me into running a few months ago, mainly because we enjoy our brunch dates after every run (it's a weird reason, I know). I must admit, I hate the part of waking up very early and the body ache until days after. Most probably, I've joined about four or five 5K already which I've enjoyed immensely, but I haven't been inclined to go farther than that because I admit that I'm not the fittest person. But lo and behold, I don't know what came over me the other day when I agreed to move up to 10K on a charity marathon on April 1.

So I wake up this morning with the thought that if I don't want to embarrass myself, I have to push myself and work hard until April 1 - by working out more often, eating more healthily and cutting down sugar on my diet. Yikes! I still have a few weeks so I hope I'll do well.

Wish me luck! Who knows, after my 10K on April 1, I might push myself harder and try 21K next time. Here's hoping! =)

    What a great incentive to get even healthier! My friend talked me into an "extreme" 5K in May. While part of me is intimidated that I might make a huge fool out of myself, the other part of me wants to prove to myself that I can do it!

    That is great, good for you! I love it when I run a few times a week, and it always leads me to have more energy throughout the day (no kidding), and it offers some insurance for better overall health.
