Couch to 5K Training

Hey Guys!

Maybe this seems weird, but I’ll just throw it out there. My sister (Emily) and I have decided to do the couch to 5K training plan. I know that I have already done three race recaps on here,but all of those races have been run/walk and I want them to be all run. Emily has never,ever run before! So, needless to say, we gotta get her moving!

We just about finished the first week, but it’s going very well. The breathing has been a little tough, and my hip has been hurting a little, but it is going okay :)

What are you guys working on? any advice on breathing while running?

Race Recap: Eco-Thon 2011

OK, I know this recap is a long time coming(the race was Saturday), but this was finals week, and you know how it goes :)

This race was seriously…AWESOME.The course was super beautiful:

photo and another:

photo(5) Just amazing…It was a little chilly but not bad. My time was less than awesome, It being a trail race, stopping to take pictures, and just generally enjoying the day instead of rushing.

OK, the cool part…ANIMALS!

photo(6) This flamingo is so beautiful. So pink! My favorite little guy(spot):

photo(7) A BABY CHEETAH! He’s 6 months old:) I know it looks like he’s dead,but he’s just rolling around in his favorite kind of grass. Check out his stripedy tail!

So, This was by far the best race I have attended. It was very well organized,super fun, and a great experience. PLUS, the money goes to help endangered species!
