New goal - run a 10K

Thursday, January 16, 2014

I've been looking and looking for a new goal. I'm just one of those folks who needs something to work towards. I need that extra "push" of a deadline.

Well, I've decided to run the Capital 10K in Austin. I walked/jogged this race 2 years ago and really enjoyed it. I'm also hoping to find a training buddy but so far my family members have all declined :-(

My ultimate goal is to run a 1/2 marathon and if I survive that, a full marathon. Baby steps though.

    You should do good at finding someone, even if not family

    That's a great goal! I'm also one of those people that needs the extra push of a deadline. You have to learn and do what works for you. Have fun training! emoticon

    10k is a great goal, and Austin would be a great city to run it in!

    Go for it! emoticon We are in the same boat. Every time I find a race and ask around nobody wants to do it. However, I did a emoticon January 1, 2014. My sister and her husband did it with me. Now, I planning to do the Bay Bridge 10k and find a emoticon to do this year.
