Yep, that’s right. I am running again. And today I ran a 5K. The last race I ran in was Memorial Day weekend 2006 (10 miler in Chicago – and I was not prepared for it!) So over 5 years later. Today’s race was in memory and honor of a friend’s father – The Ken Rome 5K. It was a great day for a race.
I started training in July, when I decided I needed to start taking care of myself again. And needing to exercise. I used the Couch to 5K iPhone app, which kept me going and told me when to run/walk as I worked my way up to running. Today I ran the race in 30 min and 30 seconds. It felt good. Definitely proud of getting going again.
