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.
