5K Fever

Yesterday our family did the Family Service and Children's Aid 5K. We competed in the family division, hoping to place, but instead we each placed in our age division for the walk, which was very cool. What I really loved was the fire lit under Soph as we neared the finish line, Steve and I couldn't keep up and she was the first Albee-Scott to cross!

There is another 5K coming up at the middle school, the day after my birthday. I am thinking of entering the running portion, but I feel nervous. I ran a 5K before we left Utah and loved it, but it was just for fun, no medals, no awards. Oh what the heck, I need to push myself a bit again and it goes to a good cause.

The running program I followed last year that absolutely worked (I followed it religiously!):

Guess I better lace up and head out there!

  1. LOVE LOVE LOVE 5Ks. I am always in a race with myself to improve my times. Now that I'm back to running, my slowness and lack of stamina are disappointing. :( I try not to be too hard on myself and I know it will come back. For now I'm avoiding an actual 5K race because I know my time will be ABYSMALLY slow and I'll just be mad. :) Maybe by the end of the summer.

    SO fun!! Keep at it - I LOVE races.
