Breaking news...

I just signed up for another 5K! It's called Sherry's Run, and it is in honor of cancer victims and survivors. I will participate in honor of my father, who died of cancer in 2005. I will also do it in support of a teacher here at my school who is battling cancer right now. The 5K walk/run is on September 12, so I have about a month to prepare. I really want to run/walk this one. The last one I only walked it, and met my goal of finishing in less than an hour. This time I think I'm gonna make my goal 40 minutes.

SOOOO... this means I have to start getting on that dread-mill. I figure that instead of 45 minutes on the elliptical and 15 on the stationary bike, I will do 30 minutes on the treadmill, 30 minutes on the elliptical. During my treadmill time I will try to run a little - well, as much as I can. I still have bad knees, and I'm still very heavy, so I'm not going to over-do it. I just want to step up my game from the last 5K. That one was at the beginning of April, and I've came a long way since then.

I might even do some of those couch to 5K podcasts...
