MOMentum 5K Walk/Run

     So I've made the decision to sign up for my very first real life 5K walk/run.  It seems basic enough for a newbie like me even if I can't run the whole thing. It's a good start and I am glad I decided to do it. I'm actually really excited, and really nervous. MOMentum, is the link to their website's event page with more information.

     Yesterday was actually a really great day. I walked the 6K route through the ravine that I plan to train on and it's not as scary as I actually thought it would be. I couldnt run yesterday because I had a 15lb weight and was pushing Nina in a bike. Not to mention I had Adrian there, slowing me down as usual (kidding, kidding...kinda.) I'm really motivated to start actually training today, but I don't have a jogging stroller and the stroller I do have is nearly impossible to push on the gravel. Then I was going to go for a walk but the skies not looking so friendly and the forecast is calling for thunderstorms. Actually, now that I think about it if I want to run outside I won't be able to start until Sunday. I'll have to run on the treadmill tomorrow afternoon. I'm not stoked about it, but I want to be able to run my 5k in August! So for today I'll take a rest day and I've planned a few different 5K's both on pavement ( so I can push the stroller or bike) and through the trails, and some 2.5 K's for days when I don't have the time or the energy for a full walk/jog/run.

     On a less happy note, I weighed in and my weight was 1 lbs less then it was yesterday.... which is great except yesterday was 3lbs more then a few weeks ago... which was already 3 lbs more then a few weeks before that but I had the flu so I expected not to keep it off... So I weighed 160. Then I got on my scale 157?! I didnt believe it I got on and off like 5 more times... 157. Then one last time...160. I think my scales messing with me.


  1. Yay! Congrats on your first official 5k event! It's addictive:)

  2. You're gonna have so much fun! the first event I ever ran was a 5km! Now I run one 3 x week,lol. It's true, it really is addicting!

  3. Ahhh so stoked for the 5K! I would sign up with you if I could run at all... if I did it, I would be walking for sure. =P

  4. Thanks everybody, I'm really excited. Andraea, I think Victoria might walk it!
