Taking the New Year and running with it.


Phew! Since the last post (almost a month ago) we survived the holidays, prepared for a 2.5-month school for my husband, had an amazing singing party and generally had a grand ol' time.

I have a backlog of posts to write and share (now that they won't spoil any holiday surprises) and intend to post a little more regularly now that there's time to breathe.

My big news (one that I'm a little nervous to share) is that I'm going to run a 5k!

My husband's military career requires him to pass their fitness test, which always includes a run. As he has never found pleasure in running, it has often turned into a chore. In an attempt to be a more supportive partner, I decided that I would surprise him by doing the Couch to 5k program (C25k) and registered us for a 5k race close to his course for Valentine's day.

A couple of days after the New Year, I sprung the news. Not only had I been
running for 5 weeks without him knowing, we were going to do a race together!

Having told myself and anyone else that "I don't run" since puberty, this is
a giant scary step for me - well tons and tons of little ones at least.

I'm pleased to say that I've stuck with it long enough that
I've not only noticed a difference but I might actually possibly be starting to enjoy it. Maybe :D  


  1. I'm impressed! And I love the logo!

    1. The logo is not only the title (and theme) of the race, it's on the commemorative blankets. :)
