OUT OF BODY EXPERIENCE
Yesterday morning, in some sort of daze I presume, I signed up for Ladies Night Out, a 5K in Newburyport sponsored by B&S Sports. At some point yesterday afternoon, I thought, say what!!! Did you really sign up for a 5K? Really?????? I haven't run since I did the Arnold Pump & Run about 4 years ago.
I think this description of the event that caught my attention...
"Cross the finish line on a red carpet to be greeted by handsome gentleman offering an accolade of flowers, mouth-watering fine chocolates, scrumptious hors d'oeuvres and a fine selection of wine and beer."
Flowers, apps, wine, beer and handsome men at the finish line...yes, I am in. Guess I was just easily seduced by the decadence. Now I actually have to run.
It is not my intention to do a whole lot of training. I am going to trust my kettlebell training to get me through. I will do some runs but I want to see how the KB training translates into running. Will I be stronger and run faster than I previously did? Or will I be the one sucking wind throughout the race. I will just stay focused at the fun at the end.
Up for the challenge...join me on Dec. 12, 2012 at 2:00.
