Linking up with three pugs & a baby today for Training Tuesday.
In 19 days, I will walk into Yankee Stadium for the first time ever, and it won’t be for a baseball game. [They’ll actually be playing the Red Sox on Sunday Night Baseball that night.]
I’m running a 5k there. It’s the Damon Runyon 5k for Cancer Research. This is the race that inspired me to start C25K in the first place. When I heard about it, I thought, ‘Wow, that sounds really cool! I want to do that!’ So I started the C25K. And then I got pregnant with Little Bear and things kind of a took a tanker from there. I was totally cleared to continue running, but I was so zapped from exhaustion that not only did Butter watch an absurd amount of television, but I couldn’t find the motivation to get on the treadmill.
I was completely determined to be read this year, and I asked two of my best friends to run with me. In the spirit of fun, our team is called Team 33. Hey, I couldn’t help it. We’re also planning to run in Cliff Lee t-shirts. I expect boos, but hey, I’m a Phillies fan. We’re used to those, even though we’re usually on the giving end. 😉
I haven’t been exactly consistent with my training, and I know that’s going to cause some trouble when I actually get to race day, but I’m determined to keep up and have a good time. And it’s my first race, so I can’t do anything but improve, right?
