OK, I am going to do it

Not a marathon, not yet, but I have decided to run a 5K. There is one in June that is a fund raiser for an animal rescue charity in Little Rock. Benjamin has promised to run with me. I think I can get up to running a full 5K by then - I did more than that on the treadmill yesterday, but that was with walking intervals interspersed.

I'm not sure why I have a desire to do this all of a sudden, although I am sure reading about Chris's runs are part of it. And a need to keep pushing myself. Whatever the reason, I am sure I can do it - heck, I was hiking a 5K into the beach with a 45 pound pack when I was 12. Surely I can run a 5K now!
