OMG I’ve lost my mind and I’ve signed up for my first 5k in 17 years. I have signed up for the Tulsa Color Run. A friend of mine said that she was going to do it and have a blast. Not so much run as just walk fast and have a fun time. I thought this would be the perfect way to start, hopefully, new 5K habit.
The color run is more about the fun of getting out and doing it than a hard core run but it will be a jump start in the right direction.
Of course I need new gear to start getting ready like new running pants and support bra (those breastfeeding milk jugs need to be contained and protected) but boy I’m excited. I haven’t run since before Odinn was born but now I really am excited to start. My body needs the exercise too. Since we have daylight longer during the day I have decided that I will be ready to leave the house as soon as my husband gets home and go for half an hour 3 days a week and when I can do that easy I will add a 45 min run once a week and then when that becomes easy then I will add an hour run. I know I have a ways to go here but boy will this be fun and painful. LOL
Have you done a 5K this year? It has been on my bucket list for a while now. I did a few before I was an adult but I haven’t done any since. Always thought that I had to be a runner that could run for an hour with out stop to do one. Well I haven’t been that EVER so I never went out. I’m hoping to really get into running again. I miss it. I quit while I was pregnant with my first because it hurt so much to run. Hoping my hips will let me do this with out too much pain. My body after 3 kids in 4 and a half years is not very happy with me.
