Runner

So, a few weekends ago I ran my 5k, like I posted before. And I haven't run at all since then. Not because I don't want to (well, maybe a little bit) but mostly because I never have the time or energy. This last week, there has been something every single day that's kept me from running. I'm going to try harder to get out this week. I have to. I have a 10k in less than 3 months and I am not at all ready! Anyway, here I am in all my sweaty about-to-throw-up glory. No, I didn't actually throw up, but almost. I don't know why races do that to me. I never have that problem when I run my normal workout, but by the end of a race I'm fighting not to puke. Hopefully I don't after my 10k. I think I might try working out with Hubby's ipod again, find a nice beat to run to. A lot of the other runners I saw used ipods, and I was reading a running messageboard about music to run to and how it can help you keep a steady pace so you don't wear yourself out too soon. So far what I've been doing is just singing "Eye of the tiger" in my head throughout my runs lol. Corny, but it does help.

Oh, I almost forgot the funniest part about my 5k. As I neared the finish line my family was waiting for me. Jakey saw me and yelled, "Mommy!" and ran up to me lol. I had to keep going and Hubby tells me Jakey had the most confused look on his face that I just ran away from him lol. The other spectators thought it was pretty funny that he ran out to me lol.
