Getting 5k Ready

Today, a friend of mine invited me to a running group tonight. I was a little hesitant because I haven't run in a million years (ok, since about September). It is a 3 mile run or walk so I said "Why not?!". I had to warn my friend that I run really slow. Ha. She said she does too.

Uh yeah, whatever! She was done like 10 or 15 minutes before me, hahahaha. I am proud of myself though. I ran the first mile, walked the second and ran the third.

I want to do this every Thursday and maybe a few other days too. It is something that I don't enjoy but tolerate more than the gym. Plus, I want to have that sleek runner's body! :) I used to run before I got married and it really does change your body. It is fun trying to get faster running times too!

Does anyone else run? Any tips for me?

!!!!If you need a new running buddy sometime, I can try! I'm not very good at running, but I do love the idea of it ;)
Tips.. {1}Hold your forefinger and thumb together like you're holding a piece of paper... I forget why--I think it's a mind thing?
{2}Keep your arms down, I always tend to bend them... and that's wrong!
{3}Make sure your hydrated BEFORE the run.. 'if you're thirsty, it's too late'

Way to go! I hate running, lol. But I admire anyone who can do it! Two miles right off the bat is great! Good for you!
