I Signed Up for a 5K!

This morning I ran 2.47 miles in 25 minutes. That’s pretty significant because shortly after my last update I hit a big slump. I’d run for 20 minutes twice but suddenly I could barely go 12. I got really frustrated and ended up going back to the beginning of week five to try to build up again. I don’t know if it was the weather, some illness, not being in a good mental space, or what. But I broke through it, did the 20 minutes again, then 22, and now, this morning, 25 minutes.

That puts me on track to do a 5K (3.1 miles) in about 32 minutes. So it’s time to put my money where my feet are and actually sign up for a 5K.

I’m entered in the Hot Chocolate Run in Northampton on December 6. It’s a run to benefit Safe Passage, a charity to help survivors of domestic abuse. I’m also trying to raise $125 in “sponsors” for my run (that’s the lowest amount, because I still don’t really feel like too much should hinge on my ability to jog for 3 miles).

If you’d like to donate, please click the image below. If I hit $125 I’ll do…something…haven’t figured it out yet. I’ll get back to you on that. Anyhow, thanks for all the encouragement you folks have been giving me!
