This past September I agreed to run my very first 5K to benefit Haven, the local Woman's shelter.  Now let me start of by saying, I am a horrible runner.  I always have been!  Remember back in elementary school when you had to run a mile?  Yup, that was joke around day for me.  My friends and I would slowly walk it just above the pace of getting yelled at by the teacher.  I started my "training" about 8 weeks before the race, and hated every minute of it.  It was around 5 days until race time when I stepped down of my elliptical machine (the only piece of gym equipment I can remotely stand), and my legs felt stronger.  That was the day things started to change for me.  I ran the 5k in what most are describing as a "respectable" time....whatever that means!  It felt good to finish, without passing out along the way.  That afternoon I wasn't sure if I would ever do another race, but as the next couple of days passed I found myself wanting to get back at it.  SO, I committed to running the Huffing for Stuffing 5k on Thanksgiving Day.  Now don't get me wrong, I still hate working out...RUNNING SPECIFICALLY...but I feel like I have made a positive change in my life.

When was the last time you challenged yourself to do something different.  What do you have to loose?  Wanna join me?
