2 More Weeks Until the Pig!

Just 2 more weeks until the weekend of the Flying Pig Marathon in Cincinnati, OH. As a friendly reminder or a reminder to myself... I'll be running my very first 5K along with my sister Denise. Denise will also be running the marathon on Sunday. God bless her!

Am I ready? Yes, most definitely, YES! The Couch to 5K program was perfect for getting me up to speed. I highly recommend it to everyone thinking of running. As a testament... before starting the program back in January, I was huffing and puffing after a few minutes of running. Now, I'm digging running... here's what I did this week:
  • Monday - 3.7 miles in 38 minutes
  • Wednesday - 3.7 miles in 38 minutes
  • Friday - 4.5 miles in 47 minutes (longest run)
I cannot wait to see Denise and Debbie. Debbie, my oldest sister will be coming along to cheer us on! How fun! I'm also bringing Briana along. She was going to run, but decided that it's just not her thing. So, she'll be there to root us on also. I'm just excited that she'll be coming along for the trip to spend some quality time with good old Mark Daddy!
