A first

Oh boy. So a couple months ago I started the Couch to 5k program, determined to run a 5k once and for all (call me crazy, but I've always wanted to run one).

I was going strong thanks to my fantastic running buddy (thank you Kristen). I was even going on my own on days when she wasn't able to. I was committed.

You'll notice I'm using the past tense.

So I was doing so great with my training and then the last couple of weeks happened. Between a new calling, helping plan the ward trunk or treat, Halloween costumes, Nathan studying and taking his licensure exam etc., I totally dropped the ball on my training.

My 5k is on Saturday. As in this Saturday.

The furthest I've run is 2.5 miles....

Needless to say I'm a little nervous, but I am committed to finishing the race even if I have to walk part of it (which would be a bummer).

But if that happens I'll just remind myself that finishing the race is better than finishing it perfectly.

Wish me luck!


  1. Good luck, Katy! I seriously considered the Couch to 5k program once. But not because I wanted to run a 5k. Mostly just because I really need to get into better shape, but I don't want to pay for a gym and running is free. But I hate running. So that sounded like a good way to work my way into it. But then I got pregnant and wow! What a wonderfully convenient excuse not to do it! Hahahaha. Perhaps I can find me a running buddy in my new ward after the baby is born so that I can actually do it. Because I would need that kind of commitment to get myself to do it...

  2. 2.5 miles, you are almost there! You might surprise yourself... have fun!
