About six weeks ago, I started an adventure.
I'm out of shape, heavier than I want to be - and I'm finally fed up with it. I'm ready to start taking a whole lot better care of myself, so it was time to do something to change things up.
I committed to the Couch to 5K training program, and to my first 5K with The Color Run on Sept. 7.
Yikes. Y'all, I was afraid. Very afraid.
I have never, ever been a runner. And it hasn't been easy, but five weeks in, I'm surviving it. Which is more than I thought I had the strength to do when I started.
I've had some awesome supportive family members - my sister and my husband especially. And my mom has been willing to do anything to encourage me. That means the world when you're starting a tough journey you know?
I can't believe I've stayed silent for five weeks of this training, but I wanted to be sure I could commit to it and do it before I put it out there. But now it's here to stay. I'm hoping to run (most of) a 5K in September, October and November. After that, I'd love to add some Pure Barre and fitness classes in to mix it up.
I'm looking for a little advice now too.... what are you favorite fitness secrets? Clothing brands? Running shoes? I need LOTS of advice - and any support you've got to offer to!
Here's to a life-changing adventure,
