Look how far I've come

I've been planning some running events for this year and I found one that takes place at my high school in April. This one has some meaning to me. When I was in junior high/high school when we would have to run the mile, I would be devastated! I always came in last and most of the time I would end up hyperventilating. I was reduced to the embarrassment of "breathing in a paper bag" in front of my classmates. I have come a long way. I think this is my chance to shine and prove to myself how far I've come. I think doing a 5k on the same grounds where I struggled as a teenager would be awesome. I don't expect to come in first, but finishing strong is my goal. Definitely no breathing in the bag thing...

Run Cougar Run 5K and Fun Run

I'm back on track with working out and feel great! So far I have 3 5k races on my schedule. I'll also do several charity walks throughout the year beginning with the March for Babies walk and Cystic Fibrosis walk in May. No excuses! 2012 is going to be a great year.


  1. I think it is awesome that you are doing this!!
