Saturday February 12, 8 am
Celebrate friendship, health and fitness in this fun 5K race! Call us(YMCA) and sign up over the phone OR come into our Y. Race packets can be picked up at our expo on Friday the 11th or at 7 am on race day. $20 per person OR $30 for two friends together. Just $10 for high school or Jr. high students, and Fit 4 the Future Kids under 11 are FREE!"
It's incredibly hard for me to stay focused on something as grand and in-your-face as "Weight Loss". It's a long-term goal and not a short-term. I rarely have the attention or motivation these days to stick to my long-term goals (probably something to bring up with my therapist...)
I tend to talk myself into self-defeating cycles and eventually give up. But, I called the local Y, and it's walk/run (thank goodness because even the Couch-to-5K program is 2 months!) 5K is just over 3 miles, which I know I can walk easily enough (heck, my dog drags me more than that on a regular basis). It's in less than a month, but it's something to look forward to ... amid all the packing. Maybe I will be able to run part of it (says the woman who hates running with a passion....).
But it will be nice to know that I can complete a 5K.
