On that note, A.B. mentioned the other night that he thought it would be fun for us to run a 5K race together. Now, running a 5K is something that I've wanted to do for a while. I used to be an avid runner -- running at least a mile or two every day. But I've fallen out of that pattern over the past year or so. So when he mentioned this, I was a little nervous. Not only for the fact that I'll need to get back into shape to complete it, but because of some emotional baggage when it comes to exercise and a signifigant other. Not quite ready to post the details of *all that*, but let's just say, I've got a few hang-ups about it.
Long story short, I agreed that we should/would do a 5K in the next few months. The one we've found that we're going to do in June is in Greenville, The Candlelight Run.
My sister and I actually talked about doing this very run last summer, but we both had different things going on and just never got around to signing up for it. A.B. and I went to the Nike outlet last night and invested in some new running shoes. I ended up with these:
I'll be sure to keep ya'll posted on the progress... And I'm gonna do my best to finish up my birthday post tonight -- I promise!
