I’ve been debating about whether to do a post about all the goals I want to set and resolutions I want to work on for 2011. I still might so that, but there is one challenge I’ve set for myself that I definitely wanted to share with you all.
Partially because I am excited about it, but more honestly, because I need you to help keep me accountable. Selfish, right? 😉
It started after I ran my first 5k…
and I didn’t keep up with running very well afterwards. Without a goal to strive for, it was hard to keep myself motivated.
I played with the idea of another 5k, but with the craziness that is the holiday season, it didn’t happen.
Then for Christmas my awesome parents gifted me some motivation in the form of running tights.
BAM! Welcome back motivation, I’ve been wondering where you’ve been.
I tried these out on Monday with a wog and they felt fantastic! They kept me warm, but not too warm. And they kept my thighs from ever touching each other, which I enjoyed as well! 🙂

I loved the Couch to 5k App so much, that I figured I can’t go wrong with the 10k variety. I love it because it starts off slowly, and since I have been on a hiatus from my regularly scheduled jogging, it’s perfect!
Let me remind you that I am not a natural runner. Plus, given the really cold weather we’ve been having, I don’t foresee this being easy. But that’s OK, because I’m going to give it a go and see what happens! And hopefully I’ll have you all behind me giving me a swift kick in the rear 😉
…and if anyone knows of any 10ks around late April somewhat close to Charlotte, NC, please let me know!
