See Jane Run

Yep, that’s right. I am running again. And today I ran a 5K.  The last race I ran in was Memorial Day weekend 2006 (10 miler in Chicago – and I was not prepared for it!)  So over 5 years later.  Today’s race was in memory and honor of a friend’s father – The Ken Rome 5K.  It was a great day for a race.

I started training in July, when I decided I needed to start taking care of myself again. And needing to exercise. I used the Couch to 5K iPhone app, which kept me going and told me when to run/walk as I worked my way up to running.  Today I ran the race in 30 min and 30 seconds.  It felt good.  Definitely proud of getting going again.

  1. Good job!! That was my exact time on my first 5K last year; just over my ‘under 30 min.’ goal. I liked your post about the happiness book. I am interested in checking into that book, for the same reason….that you can always improve upon your self & it doesn’t mean you are unhappy. I really like how honest you are about life. Keep up the good blogging.
