Don't be fooled by this picture - I am not athletic - at all! A couple of years ago Kate convinced me to do a triathlon - then she bailed! Turned out to be a tough one, according to other people who actually do this sort of thing on a regular basis.
Anyways, you can read all about it HERE, back when I did a much better job of family blogging (it's a pretty good post - I scanned it when I went to grab the picture).
So why am I bringing this up, 2 years after the fact?? Because I must have forgotten that I'm not an athlete - Today I'll be running in my first-ever 5k - I don't even like running - why am I doing this!! I haven't trained - well actually, a couple of weeks ago when it was warm I ran the circle around our neighborhood, 0.9 miles, and had to stop several times to walk. I've probably done that 5 times - does that count as training??
My goal - to beat my mom - it's her first 5k also and she doesn't run - but she has a killer speed-walk thing going for her.....who will prevail?.......
