So…apparently there’s this thing called running. It seems to be all the rage, and everyone’s talking about it.
So I thought…hey…I’m gonna go with the “in” crowd. I’m gonna go running!
Needless to say…that didn’t last too long.
Then I managed to get myself wrapped up in this group of ladies called coaches. Fitness coaches. Me. Voted the most lazy, and I ended up running with the fit crowd.
And when you run with the fit crowd…well…you kinda have to run.
Okay. That’s an exaggeration. I could overcome the peer pressure of all these hot, fit friends of mine doing the cool thing. I’m good. But then, I have these kids. They are getting kinda big. I’m not really sure how that happened. But all of a sudden they WANT to play sports. Say WHAT?
My daughter almost changed her mind on her chosen sport when she discovered that it involved running. Like..she was just gonna perch her pretty little self under the basket and shoot some hoops when her team was done with all that running mumbo-jumbo.
The fact that she still wants to play is proof that she’s serious…so I guess she gets to try! But first…we have to teach her how to run.
Okay…more exaggeration. But really. This girl puts molasses in January to shame. She moves at her own pace for sure. So we’re going to have to ease her into this. And me. We’re going to have to ease me into it.
So I get this brilliant idea. Running! I’m going to start running with my kids this summer! Great idea, right?
Ask me in a couple weeks.
But really…it’s a great idea! So…because I know myself, and I know I’ll quit…I need my support group. 😉 I’m opening up a FREE Facebook challenge group for us to talk about our progress. It will be AWESOME! And…I’ve even got some good runner friends coming to help us out. Cause you know…I don’t know the first thing about running. 😛
