- Run on Saturday October 30 or Sunday 31.
- The distance is up to you.
- It doesn’t have to be a race, a training counts too.
- Mention on your blog or in a comment on my blog when you ran, the distance you ran and the time you ran.
- Wear something pink and post a picture of you in your running outfit (if you can, if not I will still believe you)
This date and what this will represent are important to me because Halloween is my Mothers Birthday who would have been 54 this year. She passed away 6 years ago from ovarian cancer. Also for my Grandmother who Passed away almost 8 years ago from breast cancer. This will be for them.
As you know I will also be doing a 5K walk for JDRF on the 23 of this month, which I feel like is for my Father (and my Daughter/myself). His birthday is October 24, he would have been 56 this year. My Father passed away June 6th of this year due partially to diabetic complications.
While I am doing that walk and I have started my 5k training to be able to do an actual run 5k I will be no where near completing that training by either of these dates so this may be more of a run/walk for me.
I know it seems like I am doing my 5K training backwards ...shouldn't I finish before my first 5K? Well here is my reasoning behind that...right now I can do 5K at the gym but if you don't know running on a machine and running just you and the road are two totally different beast. Running on a machine you have a little bit of help to keep going, which makes more of a difference than you think until you try to actually hit the road. Im not really concerned with finishing the training before the walk, I know I can walk 3 miles.The reason im doing it is because I want to be able to run a 5K...10K..half marathon...full marathon.
Next June I will hit the big 3.0. and I want to do something big other than just going out and getting smashed. I have decided I want to be able to and actually run a half marathon by my birthday! AND I want to run a full marathon that year. I haven't figured out what races I want to do, but I'm looking. How's that for a BIG announcement!
