COUCH TO 5K

My church is involved in a couple of health related activities this New Year. First, we are running a "Biggest Baptist Loser" to help raise money for Missions. Second, in aid of the Loser thing, several of us have embarked on a "Couch-to-5k" program. The goal is to go from being a couch potato to running a 5k race in 10 weeks.

We've been using our church property as the starting point, but because of this weeks extensive rain and the fact the the church is surrounded by either construction or dirt roads, we chose a different location today. We met at my house and walk-ran around the safe, quiet suburban streets of my neighborhood.

Good time. I actually managed to get out three times this week. That and a day of weights make me sound much more manly than is actually the case. Need to keep it up.

That works! Man, keep it up! I can't wait until I hear about how well you do on the race. Have you picked one out yet?

It is our own Quartz Hill Almond Blossom Festival on March 13. I think it's called the "Nutty Run" but I haven't found it on the Net, yet.
