Race for Hope – DC

Holy burning leg muscles, Batman! Yeah so this whole jogging thing is HARD. I better start drinking some more water and stretching before these workouts because my legs HATE me right now.

The Couch to 5k training program is in full swing and it’s working my muscles more than they have ever worked in their life. At the moment my thigh muscles are SO sore that I just want to curl up in a ball on the floor until the pain goes away. I just keep reminding myself that this is NOwhere near as bad as the pain from sciatica (yeah, I have sciatica. Did I ever mention that? It hurts like hell. I would recommend avoiding it).

I also keep reminding myself that this is just a step on the path to becoming super-badass. Which is really my ultimate goal. Obviously.

oh and I also keep reminding myself that I SIGNED UP for a 5k that takes place in about 3 months. AND that this 5k is for a good cause.

Oh yeah! I should tell you about that.

I’m participating in The Race for Hope in DC — which benefits brain tumor and brain cancer research. I’m doing this event for my friend Sara (you might know her from this blog). Sara and I met in Chile and bonded over our love of sushi and coffee. We’ve kept in touch ever since, even though I no longer live in the Southern hemisphere. She’s a cool chica with first hand experience with brain tumors. Check out my participant page for Sara’s story AND there is this awesome donation button if you feel so inclined to support the cause. Every little bit helps!

And now I’m going to go drink a gallon of water and pour Icy Hot all over my legs and just lay in the middle of my living room floor. Best.Work out plan.Ever!
