On March 1, 2015 I will be running my first 5K since 2005… a DECADE ago!! Back then my foot held me back a bit and I had to walk a good portion of the race. I’ve had my IDEO for just over 2 months now and am getting stronger and stronger. The past few weeks I’ve really focused on sprint and agility drills working on my running form and leg strength. Running a 5K was one of the biggest items on my to-do list when I found out about the IDEO. I still have work to do on my running form and training, so picking a race in the springtime seemed like the best option for me. And not much will motivate me more than a bucket of hot chocolate at the finish! haha Starting in January I’ll be using the “Couch to 5K” program to ease into running the full distance. I’m excited, nervous, and READY! I will have friends and family by my side and most likely tears on my face at the finish line; even though it’s not as epic as a marathon it’s a huge deal for me to be able to do this again. I’ll keep you posted on my progress and training… and who knows… Maybe 2016 will bring me to a 10K!
