So I’ve got my eye on this 5K on August 30th. It supports the Women’s Center of Beaver County, which is committed to promoting safety and independence with the goal of reducing and eliminating the causes and effects of abuse on women and children. They strive to educate the public to provide shelter, counseling, support, advocacy, and education to victims and survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault.
If anything is going to get me running, this may just be it. I love the cause and I need motivating. The problem is, I’ve got a long way to go. I ran the kids (in their beast of a stroller) to the park today to meet Paul for a picnic and I just about died. Yeah, I was huffing, but mostly I just felt absolutely horrible and like I was going to be sick. By the way, the park is just down the street. It was an embarrassment.
So, do any of you runners have any suggestions? Any schedule that I can try to follow? And would any of you in the area want to join me on this one? I think it would be a ton of fun, runners and non-runners like me alike.
