OK~ so here is the thing, I'm just going to come out and say it, "I really really DISLIKE running". I don't like to use the word HATE, but I might have to when it comes to running. I still remember when I had to run at the Police Academy every day, I used to get anxious and have anxiety attacks. Thank God for my BFF, Cathy, for always supporting me when we ran next to each other in the academy's gym almost holding my hand. I give her credit for helping me make it out of there.
So now, that I said all that about running, guess what I'm going to be doing? Yes!! I will be running. I want to step out of my comfort zone again, and challenge myself to run a 5K on October 7, 2012.
I had to choose a 5K run event from so many out there. So I thought, if I'm going to run, I'm going to do it like a Diva. This is the reason I chose "Run Like A Diva" and registered.
I'm in training right now and doing pretty good so far. Thanks to the support and encouragement of my weight loss challenge group (my girls, as I like to call them) and lets not forget our trainer, #KillerKetsy and co-trainer #LittleTaffyD. I'm confident that I will be ready for October and will be giving it my best shot.
If anyone wants to join me, you are more than welcome. I will be running for all my cervical cancer survivor sisters and for those that can't anymore. My bib will read: "CCSURVIVOR DIVA"
