So to keep myself motivated and on track I signed up for a Facebook challenge.
Level 1 – Run 45 September – Run/walk at least 1 mile or an odd number of miles on the odd numbered days of the month. Run/walk at least 2 miles or an even number of miles on the even numbered days of the month. See the Run 45 September g…raphic. Anyone can do this challenge! You can run/walk on the road, a trail, or on a treadmill. Whatever your choice of surface is up to you!
So far so good!

A little slow going so far, but my goal for now is just to get out there and run. I’ll work on speed/pace once I’ve been running steady for a few weeks. My next event is this Saturday. I’ll be doing the Dino Dash 5k. Nikky will be running in it as well and I fully expect her to kick my butt.
I’ll update this as I go along. Gotta stick to it. I have big plans and goals for 2014.
