It’s a Race!

After I decided I was going to start running again, my sister came to me and said “Let’s do the Shamrock Run

And of course I said that was a great idea.  I didn’t really mean it.

I had till March to get into racing pace and it was only November at the time.  We could do it.  And of course I made my cousin do it too, after all it was her fault I am running again.

So, she didn’t mean that we were going to run the 15k, just the 5k.  And isn’t that the program I started?

I decided that to make it a challenge for me, I am going to train for the 8k instead of the 5k.  Because, well if you are gonna do it, you might as well go all balls out.  Right?

I also figured I had to have someone hold me accountable.  Since the race gives me the option to change events, I figured if I told you, all three of my readers, about it, I couldn’t back out at the last-minute.

On my sidebar I have set a countdown so we all know when my race time comes.

I have also decided that I will keep you posted on my progress.  I know, I know, you’re welcome.

So this is my official announcement that I am participating in a race event!

My family and I love the movie “Rat Race” and almost every time I am walking somewhere with my sister, at some point we quote Rowan Atkinson, so it is only fitting now.  Right?  And thank you to Riddleman65 for posting this clip for me to use.
