Whatever works..right?

We live close to Des Moines, IA.  Last weekend, there was an annual run called Dam-To-Dam.  The 20K run is from the dam at Saylorville Reservoir and ends in downtown Des Moines.  I had several friends that ran it this year.  One of our friends posted another run that is in October.  It's a fun, silly kind of run.  When my daughter, Mackenzie, heard about it, she got VERY excited.  Do you know what 11 year old girls do when they get very excited about something?  They ask...and ask...and ask.

I gave in.  I signed her up for the Color Run.  Of course, I couldn't let her run alone.  So I signed up for it.  I haven't run a 5K since high school.  I talked to Avery (our other daughter), and she wants to run it too.  And, Julie asked me to sign her up also. 

So, we have our entire family signed up for the Color Run in October.  I haven't figured out yet if I'm brave or nuts....

Anyone have success with the Couch to 5K program?

Giving Up

So, it's obvious that I haven't posted for months.  I haven't been working out, I haven't been eating right, I haven't done what I KNOW I should be doing.  In fact, this is the first time I've been ON my blog for months.  It's embarrassing.

It's time I slapped that BodyBugg back on; and started doing something.  A good friend (actually...several) ran a 5K this weekend.  It's time.  It's time I got back on track and started doing something right.
