I took the plunge yesterday. I ran my first mile in 2011. It was only 28 degrees and it only had a wind advisory out… ha! But, I had cabin fever and I needed some type of release. So, I layered up and went to run the half mile loop around my neighborhood. I have to admit, it didn’t feel that cold. The tights that I have are really comfortable and warm. However, I was bored out of my mind and the wind was blowing like crazy. Plus, let’s be honest here, it’s been a while since I’ve really ran. So, I decided that after a mile run, I was done. But, you know what, it felt good to be out there again. Even if it was a very short run.
So, with mile 1 in the books, I’ve decided that I’m pairing up with my friend Naomi and doing a 5k in February. It’s in another town and called The Valentines Day 5k. It’s on Feb 12th and I can’t wait. The really great thing is, they give out long sleeve technical tees for race shirts (or they have in past years)! It will be my first time to run it, but I’m super excited – even if I will suck wind. And yes, as my friend put it, we’ve become the girls who pick races based on the t-shirts! ha!
