I did it and I invite you to join me in the crazy adventure to learning to be a runner. Yes, crazy you might say.. not a lot of 180 pound girls out there hoofing it for 3.1 miles but at the very least you are going to know one and that will be me! ( "Lord willing and the creek don't rise" as they say in these parts)
The goal will be to run the Disney 5K family fun run just in time for my 45 th birthday in January. I am sadly out of shape, as in still holding the weight from my first baby almost 23 years ago - so of out of shape that this is going to be a very steep hill indeed.
During this adventure I am going to whine a bit, brag a bit and generally talk about how I feel, what I wear and how freakin hot it is here in Chattanooga this summer. Fall will come and I hope with that progress on my running ( or as I like to say, not gasping for breath like a trout thrown to the river bank) and January you will be witness to my angst, packing issues and posts about inner thigh chaffing - sounds fun huh?? Look for BGR updates about 1-2 a week.
Next time we meet - Bras for big girl runners with boobage!
