So.. I’ve potentially just done something very stupid.
I’ve just signed up for my first ever 5K. Eeek!
That’s right, you didn’t read it wrong, me, Yvonne, has just signed up – willingly – to run a 5k!
Saturday June 20th. Colour Me Rad near Bristol.
Only 157 days and I’m going to run with hundreds of other people, including a couple of my good friends 5K around a course whilst people throw paint over us.
What the hell was I thinking!!!! Well, at least it will be colourful!
I’ve never been a runner. I cycled a lot, did a few sponsored things but had a few too many accidents so have decided to take a break from the pedals. Running.. can’t hurt to bad can it. Man how wrong was I. I started doing the Couch to 5K training at the gym back in November but due to the weather, work and my general lack of will power it dwindled, until today!
I’ve signed up. I’ve paid my hard earned money to race and now I have to train, buy a white tee for the run and wait for the postman to get this cool gear!
I’ll keep people that are interested up to date on here between other random blog postings no doubt!
