What the hell was I thinking?

So I ran my first ever race on Saturday. It was a small race. And only 5K. Our next goal was the ConocoPhillips Rodeo Run 10K in February. Yet, somehow we let ourselves get talked into signing up for the Run Thru the Woods on Thanksgiving Day. Five miles. We had never run more than 3.2 miles.

The day after our race, when we should have been resting, we hit the pavement. Our goal was four miles, which we easily hit. Today, we did a short run. Funny how two miles equals a short run now. Tomorrow our goal is 4.5 miles. On Wednesday we will run only one mile, and then Thursday we will attempt to run the whole five in the race.

Honestly, I am not sure what we were thinking when we signed up for this race, but I am really excited to run in a "real" race!

You are inspiring me!!! Running in a 5K is on my "35 Before 35 List", but I am scared to even start!!

Leah, is your email address still the same? I can email you our training schedules. I worked with a running coach, and the schedules made it so easy to work up to the 5k. It is thirty minutes if running, five days a week. We started off just running ten minutes. It took nine weeks to build up to the 5k. We are running this five mile race tomorrow, and then training for a half (what the heck am I thinking...) in March.

If you have an "over the top"
Hogan Scarpe swing (aka casting), you can see how you would break this pane of glass at the start of your down swing. By being aware of the pane of glass your hands will drop Asics Onitsuka Tiger down to your side during the down swing, maintaining your lag (aka the slot - illustrated beautifully by< align="left">Belstaff Jackets Hogan in the photo on the right).
