My New Year's Resolution

new shoes
Since entering the 'running world' back in September (look here for that event!), I've entered three other events, amassing a little assortment of 5k t-shirts.  This new interest has been wonderful, and I've even been getting positive comments about how 'thin' I look.  That's a first!  

My New Year's Resolution is to try to keep doing this on a regular basis---entering a 5k every month or so.  These races keep me motivated to go to the gym, practice running, and keep overall in better shape.  I've even gotten my kids involved!

A race that has now opened its registration doors is the 5K Run for Fitness organized by the Public School Foundation.  I didn't do this last year (fear of failure) but have since found out that everyone wins in many ways, and it will be loads of fun.   I encourage all staff and even their family members to sign up! My husband might even do this!  Walkers, runners, old, young, adults, kids---no one is left out.

Here are a few pictures from last year from the Chapel Hill-Carrboro City Schools website.

Who is this?  Kind of looks like Wonder Woman


Date of this year's race: April 27th
Location:  Chapel Hill, UNC Campus

I hope to see you there!
