Kyra is awesome. She has set up a 5k challenge for the full year. We start in March (gives us time to work up to starting) and go through the full year. There’s friendships to be made, support to be giving and gotten, there’s prizes and the fact that you can walk/jog/run any of these races so anyone can do them. I’m excited. I hope you’ll take the time to check out Kyra’s blog and sign up (just click on the picture and it’ll take you right to the post for this).

Here’s the weekends that are scheduled for the races…

  1. March 22-23 
  2. April 26-27  (my 52nd birthday and our 34th wedding anniversary weekend)
  3. May 24-25
  4. June 21-22
  5. July 19-20
  6. August 23-24
  7. September 20-21
  8. October 18-19
  9. November 22-23
  10. December 20-21

Let’s do this together.

What’s most excellent, I’m going to be signing up for a race here in Crosslake it’s the

And it will be just the weekend before the beginning of these races and a great start.

It’s just time to get back into the distant. I’ve been getting out and moving but it’s so cold here, today –35 when I went out but I did get out and moved my butt. Than I also shoveled 5 wheelbarrow loads of coal and hauled that back to the wood shed. There’s too much snow to bring the truck out back so each load has to be hand unloaded, 25 wheelbarrow loads full. I got started.

Okay, warm up coming so 5k training can start. At least something with some distants.

Okay, go now, look up Kyra and sign up for her races. Remember you can walk them if you want. A start, any start is good.

Blessings my friends!!

I've been thinking of adding this series of 5ks to my racing list, too.

Stay Warm!

Seriously. You win prize of the century. Shoveling coal? In -35?? No thank you. Way to go!! That'll certainly get you a lot of exercise. :)
