Danger Will Robinson! Danger!

I now have a treadmill at my disposal. I'm pretty sure this is a bad thing. Before, with no treadmill, I had to plan the best time of day to run. Daylight, temperature, etc. But now? It's available to me 24/7! I'm trying not to take advantage of that. I feel like when I run on a treadmill, it makes it harder to run outside. But that's where all the races take place! Outside. No one has a 5K on a treadmill. That would be just silly. So I am just going to pretend that it is out of order. Broken. Stick to the road! Stick to the road!

I like your running blog. It's inspiring. Last night I signed up to run my first 5k. I'm pretty excited about it. I've never done it before, but I think it is a good way to keep me motivated. Plus, it's not til June, so it gives me some time. Is that embarrassing that I have to train for a 5k? I have friends training for half and full makes me feel a little sheepish.

As much as I'ld love to say that I am up for a 1/2 marathon I just don't think it is my season to do that sort of thing yet. I don't have enough time to dedicate to it. I do have to say that these races have given me a little bit of the bug, so who knows maybe when my kids are old enough to stay home alone so I can go run for an hour whenever I want. I also want you to know that this blog of yours does continue to inspire me so keep it up! I love to read about your running and your little set backs, like ib profen. It helps me to know that I am not the only one with set backs. Oh, and if you do the 1/2 marathon up here let me know I will come and cheer you on!!
