Countdown to May 4

You may have noticed the new ticker I've added to countdown the time to the Sporting Life 10K...and you may think that it looks a little busy up top with the two tickers...because I do...but I need that ticker there if only to serve as a constant reminder between now and May 4 that I need to get my lazy butt to the gym to run.

My preference would be to run outside rather on the treadmill at the gym but I'm the first to admit that I'm a fairweather runner. I do not run in the cold, nor do I run when it's wet - so you see my dilemma with the weather as it is of late. This will be my first 10K - the longest distance I've run so far is about 6.5K on the treadmill so I've got a ways to go since running inside in no way prepares you for the varied conditions of outside.

wL asked me what my goal was and I joked and said I just wanted to finish...at the rate I'm going with my training though, that may not be so far from the truth!

Good for you! I've fallen off the wagon with running altogether. I'm not a gym girl and, like you, am picky about the weather I run in. So it's always an annual binge - not sustained enough to train for something.
