This is an “invitational post”! Let me explain…
Last month I told you about my word of the year, which is Foundations. Using that word to both filter and focus my year has led me to realize I have too-long-neglected the very foundation of my physical existence: my body! So while curating our calendar a few weeks ago I entered information about the upcoming Legacy Run for Life, a fundraiser for the Alpha Crises Pregnancy Center in Albany, GA. Our family did the “Walk/Run” part of it on their initial foray, and, it appears, it’s time to do it again.
This year, however, I’m personally hoping to ramp it up! Sure, I could do the walk/run. I did it before (mostly walk, of course!), but how challenging would THAT be? So I got the absolutely crazy idea to get us (ok, me!) in shape and do the (drumroll, please!) 5K!
Now, anyone who knows me even slightly knows I am not a runner…let alone running (I mean, RUNNING?!?) 5K, which is a bit over 3 miles. Ludicrous…
But, I might add, it’s a way to motivate me to get my “foundation” in shape ~ and all for a good cause!
So, here’ the invitation: would you like to join me?
Candy found a great site that describes a program to get ya’ ready to rock n’ roll. It’s appropriately (for me, at least) named: Couch to 5K, and me and the kiddos have been working it for the last week. While it may be a bit too soon to tell if we’re ready…at least my head’s in the right place (does that count?!)… You can register online, and get more info at that same link…
Mark your calendar for March 22, 2014; if you follow our own (Mom’s Morning Coffee) calendar, all the info is on there already, too.
And, on a very personal and vulnerable note, I promise to post pictures while we’re there. (But if you join us, I won’t post yours if you don’t want me to!!)
Where else can you get such a deal? See you at Legacy Park!
