Another year older

Yep, I'm another year older since I last posted. 29.

So far I've made a few big steps towards my 30x30 goals and I can't wait to share with you the biggest one yet!

Drum roll please....

I just signed up for my first 5k! The Color Run!

What?! I know! To most people that probably isn't that big of a deal, but to me its huge.

I'm an on again, off again jog/walker. Not a runner! Not at all. But I've decided that to make this 30x30 thing work I need to start setting some serious goals and mini deadlines. I already had a 5k somewhere in the near future in my mind when a friend called and told me about the Color Run in April. I said yes! After all, if you're going to do a 5k (and your first one at that) you might as well make it "the happiest 5k on the planet" not to mention one that's not timed! Nope, no timing. Even kids can do this thing.

How hard should that be right? .... Well, I do intend to keep up with my gang of friends who are 5k runners, that's my personal challenge. And it is called the Color Run, not the Color pant while you Walk.  Besides, I'd like to do better than I would have thought possible in the first place. That's the point of goals right?

That being said....I have about 11 weeks to prepare for it. The family is totally behind me and I can't wait to show them what I can do. Honestly...all the thoughts racing through my head about why or how I will possibly pull this off turn straight to an image of my kids being proud of me, color and all.

Can't wait to make it happen!

Any big leaps you need to take this year?
