Run Josa Run!

6 Apr

So I know it’s been awhile since I said I was going to start running as my first hobby. So I wanted to give you an update.

I just started.

Thanks to a horrible case of allergies – I literally could not breathe, smell or see. My eyes were swollen, my nose was leaking and my head was killing me. After a lot medication, a random snow storm in New Mexico (thanks mother nature for killing/clearing the pollen in the air) I was able to run!

And thanks to my beautiful friend Paula, who introduced me to the Couch 2 5K app on my phone – I started running today!

It went well – and was believe it or not relaxing! Soon, well according to this app, I should be able to run a 5K in six weeks! And most importantly survive the zombie apocalypse!

A 5K was not my original goal or plan – I just need an active hobby – but it’s a good goal. I have believe it or not ran a 5K only once before and finishing it was an amazing feeling. So I guess this will turn into a hobby/goal umm hopefully! I shall keep you updated on the running and any other new hobby/habits I try!

My beautiful sister-in-law, me and my gorgeous and wonderful husband after the Turkey Trot 5K

      We should Paula! But give me maybe a couple more weeks to not sound like I smoke a pack a day:) Thanks for the app!

      Thanks for sharing! I need to get into the habit of running too. I’m going to get the app and see if that helps.

    Yay for running! Except for I’d way rather go to Village Inn and eat cheese fries and lemon dream supreme pie and talk about running instead of actually doing it =)

      Yummm cheese fries from Village Inn and crazy plots to get doctors to give us diet pills! What great times! Miss you Shannon!

    Yay, Josa! Good for you. You’ve inspired me–I went for a run (aka slow jog) yesterday and I’m hoping to stick with it 🙂
