Run Forrest Run!!!

Y’all I have lost my mind! I signed the hubs and myself up for a 5k. Yes, you read that right! A 5k. As in 3.1 miles of “running” as if in some sort of race. I mean let’s be honest. We all know I don’t run. The last time I actually ran and didn’t die was cheerleading practice my junior year of high school….10 years ago.

What the hell was I thinking??!! I mean the most exercise I get is sprinting from the couch to the microwave to get my pizza rolls before they get cold. So how am I going to pull this off without completely embarrassing myself? Luckily the run seems to be pretty laid back and walkers are totally accepted. But honestly I’m not so sure I can walk 3.1 miles and not hyperventilate. It’s going to be interesting to say the least. I think we will have a blast but let’s just hope we all survive. John Paul thinks he’s a super star athlete but he hasn’t exercised in a looong time. I mean he can’t be all buff while I veg out constantly, therefore I try my best to pull him down with me! We’ll see how it goes and I’ll definitely keep y’all posted on the outcome. If you never hear from me again then you can assume I didn’t survive.

The run is in 5 days. FIVE days! Any tips on how to prepare for a 5k in 1 week? Let me know!

You are hilarious my friend! If you don't end up running at all, you will still do fine by walking :)

I'll be watching the news to see if they run a story about you! I didn't have the balls to sign up. Just drink a Red Bull..or 5 before you go! Good luck!
