Outrun Ovarian Cancer 5K

I have been training these past few weeks for the Outrun Ovarian Cancer 5K on August 23rd. I have to honestly admit I am not a runner. I used to hate running because I was so bad at it. I would become winded and crampy in only a few short minutes and I would not make it far at all. With a lot of hardwork, I have slowly become one. I love taking aerobics classes and must have built up my stamina these past few years of going to Heidi's grueling classes. I attempted my first 5K around the neighborhood a few weeks ago and actually made it without stopping! And no side stabbing cramps! I was completely shocked at my ability and have been addicted ever since. I love it and am so glad that I can finally say that I am going to run in my first race. My goal is to complete it without stopping or walking. Wish me luck!!!!


  1. Good Luck! I kind of a runner. Right now I'm not, but I'm planning on using it to get back into shape after this helped me tremendously last summer. Races are great because they are a goal to work towards. I have no doubt you will finish without stopping! Especially in such a large race downtown. So many people cheering you on will motivate you and keep you going. I can't wait to hear about it :)

  2. It's great how far you've come--good for you! And good luck with the 5K!
