I took the plunge. I registered yesterday for my first 5k. There's no backing out now. I'm up to running 4.5 miles easily, so I'm going further than a 5k. It's on August 23rd. Hopefully, the heat won't do me in too badly. Starting this week, I'm going to run outside at least once a week. The actual race starts at 7:00 a.m., so maybe it won't be too miserable outside. I can hope can't I? I'm already a little nervous, even though I know I shouldn't be. I'm not particularly racing for a good time, but just to run the whole thing and finish. It's more of a personal goal, than anything else. There's no backing out now!
