Running Wo-Man 2

Today started week 2 of our Couch to 5K running plan. Ran a total of 5 minutes today (last week was 3). I RULE!!! Me and my running partner, "A" have decided to when we are up to the 5K level, we are going to do one at the coast - Santa Barbara or Pismo. Our husbands will be at the finish line with our kiddos and will be cheering for us. It will be a grand day!

I'm doing a 5k on May 17. I learned after I started that it was called "Women in Motion." But there are plenty of guys doing it.

I will be continuing on afterward, running a 10k in July, and aim to do a half-marathon by the end of the year.

Maybe next year I'll be as good as Krista.

Congrats to you, though. If you feel like me, it's very rewarding for you.

I wanna look like the gal in the picture. :-) Ha ha!

I'm so proud of you! I even e-mailed Kristy to tell her! She's also running the Rock 'n Roll Marathon in June! It's funny to me that I can run as far as I can. I'm doing 16 miles on Saturday! In September, when I started training, I started with 3 minutes walking and 2 minutes running for 30 minutes total! You are going to LOVE your 5K. It is such a feeling of acomplishment! If you run in the OC, Santa Barbara, or even LA, let me know. I'd love to try and join you!

Emma has crossed the finish line with at several races. It makes the accomplishment even sweeter. You have to put the word out when you do a race so we can ALL come cheer for you!
