Dot to Trot

My world is expanding as my butt is shrinking!

Four 5Ks in 99 Days

So far this year, I’ve walked in just one 5K race.  For my New Year’s resolution, I set a goal of five 5Ks.  I’m a bit behind.

There’s still 99 days left in 2013. Time to get into gear.

I signed up for two local 5Ks in October. The first one is in two weeks and the second is the day after my wedding anniversary.

That gives me a couple of weeks to prepare for the October 5th race, focusing on distance and not speed.  Before the knee went wonky on me, I walked 6.5K (4 miles) nearly everyday. So I’m not anticipating any problems. I’m up to 2 miles a day now without any knee pain. I’m planning on increasing my distance to 3 miles by mid-week. Fingers crossed!

There’s a Color Run 5K in Baltimore the Sunday before Thanksgiving that just looks fun. Not familiar with Color Runs?  It’s a paint race. Just wear white at the start of the race and at each kilometer, you’re doused from head to toe in color.  I’ll see if I can convince the hubby to walk with me.  My only concern is the time of the year – mid-November in Baltimore. I’ll need to layer my clothes.

That leaves me finding one more 5K before the end of the year.
