The countdown is on!

17 hours until the big run!

That's right ladies and gentlemen I have made it to the 5k I spoke about here! I know I have been a blog slacker but life has been CRAZY and I promise to fill y'all in soon.

On to the important part... tomorrow at 7am sharp I will be participating in my very first 5k. Now I know a 5k isn't something to go out and celebrate about or anything but for me it is HUGE. I don't run, I just don't but I think I may start to. At first I just wanted to be able to say that I ran a 5k, you know a bucket list type thing but now I actually think I am starting to like it.

I explained to Brett last night that when I run it is about ME. It's not about being a mommy, a wife, an Operations Coordinator, I am just ME. No phone calls, emails, crying baby, I just have ME time to clear my head. I feel refreshed and new after I run, I feel a sense of accomplishment and pride, I FEEL GOOD! We all know a happy Mom makes a happy home so I think this running is a good thing all around.

My personal goal is to run the whole 5k under 30 minutes. I have done a few practice runs and it looks like that should be obtainable. Brett is confident that I will make the top 10 but we shall see, I hate to set myself up for failure. If I do make the top 10 though I think I deserve something special. :)

Wish me luck blog readers!
