So today begins my outdoor running. I have not run outside in years. I have been running on a treadmill and I know that it is completely different. To me it seems running outside may be a little more difficult as I don't have something giving me any momentum other than my legs. I think it is going to be very interesting to see if I enjoy this or not (I'm hoping I love it). I am beginning this because my darling friends LCHADBOURNE and her husband have talked me into running my first 5k with them on Thanksgiving while they are here for a visit. I'm really looking forward to experiencing my first one with good friends, especially with someone who is such an inspiration.
I am walking a 5k with my mother and father in a couple of weeks, I definitely will not be running as it is a trail walk and I most definitely am not up to that at this point. I will however be walking at a fast pace, hoping I can get a good calorie burn out of it.
So, wish me luck that running outside doesn't kill me
