I signed up to do my first 5k! I am going to be walking/ pushing Drew in the Disney Jingle Jungle 5k in November. AJ is going to be joining us, too. I am really excited about this. I am excited about the fact that I don't have to run, but we still have to maintain a 15 minute mile.
When we moved into the new house AJ and I started walking more. We have been going over to Universal 2-3 times a week to walk. Walking both parks is about 5 miles, so it is a fairly good workout. I have also been setting a 2 mile radius around the house. That means that if something I want to do is within 2 miles, then I have to walk to it. I have been doing really well with this logic.
The 5k is a big part of my desire to get healthy. I want to be fit and healthy to be able to keep up with Drew. Also, whenever we get around to trying for another baby I want to be in much better shape. I want our family to have a good goal of being a healthy family. AJ has even started playing ultimate frisbee again. While he plays Drew and I walk a 2.5 mile loop around the park.
I am very excited about all this! I haven't lost any weight in the last month and a half that we have been doing it, but I am feeling much better. Also, Drew is really enjoying being out and about. The only negative lately has been the crazy heat during the day and the crazy downpours of rain in the later afternoons. These two things make it difficult to get out and walk.
