I've taken a personal challenge (a resolution, if you must) to run 100-5ks this year. If you do the simple math, that's averaging two-5ks a week for 50 weeks, with two weeks off at some point during the year (Thanksgiving slump, anyone?). So far, I've made it 9% of the way through my goal, but it's been hard already!
These aren't official 5ks, mind you, because I'm not made of money ($15 entry fee x 100= too much of my hard-earned money!) and because most races don't allow dogs...Graham & Jake would be very disappointed if I ran so often without ever inviting them, so they've become my new running buddies. They seem to really enjoy the route I've chosen, as about half of it allows them to be off-leash and run at their own pace.
I will post more on the challenge as time goes, so wish me luck!
