Let me explain something: I DON'T RUN. I hate running and jogging. I'm not against sprinting, but that's a completely different animal. I am one of the few trainers on the face of the planet who doesn't make clients run. I think there are far better ways to burn fat than jogging laps on a track.
Anyhow, I've been asked for years to do a 5K, and I've never done one. However, this weekend I participated in the Pink Power Run. It is the first 5K I've ever done and it was great fun. I had a blast.
No, I did not run. Ok, I'm fibbing a bit. My 5k partner, Baleigh, an awesome young lady, and I ran out of the gate, and we ran the last leg in, but we walked the rest of the course on Georgia Southern University's campus.
The walk brought back many memories since I attended GSU many years ago. It was really beautiful, and with the students off for the day, it was effortless to maneuver across the campus.
We finished in 50 minutes. No, we were not the fastest, and our time was demolished by a woman running with a stroller, and a baby on her hip- yes, on her hip- but we did finish!
