I'm Running a 5K!

So far I have set goals for 2009 regarding my walk with God, my marriage and my parenting. Goal number four is in regards to healthy living. Looking back to 2008 my goal was to exercise no less than 3 times a week and good news - I accomplished this goal!!!

I have attended an aerobic class twice a week at church and I have been running on my treadmill in the basement with some spurts of pilates and weights added in there. So this year I have a new goal!

I hate running - BUT I have committed to running a 5K this March! I am so scared! I have never ran in a race before and my only goal is to not be last!!! I have a group of good friends from church who are doing this with me - and the accountability is inspirational!

Why am I running? Because studies have proven that exercise improves your energy, health and longevity and I want to have the healthiest body possible to serve my Lord and my loved ones! I Corinthians 6:20 says to "honor God with your body." I believe that exercise is a way to honor God with my body. I am taking care of what he has given me.

So - I'm in training mode and trying to run 3 miles a few times a week! I just did my first 3 mile run of the year last night and it was a painful run after all of my holiday eating! So it looks like my eating habits need to change too! So I have some research to do - and if you have any suggestions for beginning runners - feel free to post a comment and give me some advice! I'd love to hear any tips on how I can be ready to run in 10 weeks!

Walk with the King!

Girl! I wish you could too! I bet the weather in Texas will be better on March 14th than here. I have a funny feeling we may be running in a blizzard!!! It could happen! I'm praying now for sunshine!

Love you,
