It is Saturday morning and we are just finishing our 6th week of Team Myles training.
I am getting myself ready to run my first 5k race…Wait what?
That’s right today I am running in the 5k Shubie Classic. Something I never thought I would do it say. But I am doing it.
A month ago I was dreading the Bluenose marathon thinking I wouldn’t be able to run the 5k in May. Now I have run 7.5k, registered for the 10k in the Bluenose, and running today in the 5k because I know I can do it and I want to do it!
I have not reached 10k while running yet but I know it is only a matter of time. Each week I am finding myself running further and longer then I ever thought possible for myself. And with a month left of training I know I can hit the 10k.
I never was a runner and would never have thought about signing up for a race. But today I am excited to be running in my first race with some great Team Members by my side and I am looking forward to the next month and the thought of crossing that finish line on May 20th. I might even be planning to participate in runslatter Bluenose.
I guess I am a runner now. Who would have thought?
