My sister was making fun of me the other day... What type of sports is she now in???
well, it should come to no surprise that I would add Running to my sports adventures.
In my last post i said i was hoping to run a 5K... well, i'm glad to report that i've done a 5K, a 10K, a 12K and now i'm aiming towards a half marathon in September! pretty good isnt?
The first time I ran the 5K it was one of the coldest day of the year. Thanks to great gear, gloves and hat, i was able to stay warm and finish the race ahead of my goal time. At the end of the race, I felt great. I felt i had achieved something great.
Just check out my video and you'll see what i mean.
My third race was a 10K - the Scotland homecoming race. It was soaking wet, cold and windy. The trick to last in this nasty weather is to wear just enough clothes to run, a poncho that covers you head, put vaseline on your feet, wear your socks, wrap each foot in a plastic bag and tie it lightly with a rubber band. Trust me, it works. I got the advise from a friend who is a Marathon freak.
so, as you can see, i've got the running bug.
