It's Crunch Time!

My sister Becky asked me today if I would like to be her partner for the "Mad Hatter Relay" that is coming up in March. The relay is part of the women's fitness program in Boise and is for teams of 2. Each team mate will run two miles, then hand off their wacky hat (instead of a baton) to the other team mate. Each person has to run 2 sets for a total of miles. Sounds pretty simple, but to tell the truth, I am definitely NOT a runner. I decided to accept this as a challenge and give it a chance. If I can handle it I may consider training with Becky for the 10K run she is gearing up for this May. I'm going to hit the gym tonight and see how well I do on the treadmill. Keep your fingers crossed for me!! Who knows, this may be the kickstart I have been needing to get into the groove. I figure I have 20 pounds to go to make myself happy, but my mini goal is that I want to look decent in a pair of shorts this summer. I guess I had better get cracking! I welcome all advise and support!! :-)

You can do it! You can do it! You can do it! Just keep chanting this mantra as you plug away at the training. (Honestly, you and Becky are so much braver than I with this running thing!)
