I've always been a runner. Sort of.
Fast forward to today: I can run for about 3 minutes before I realize all the better things i could be doing with my time.
There are a few reasons for this. First of all, I try to go light on anything that might build muscle in my legs, lest they end up like my dad's:
I haven't actually signed up yet, but I figure once I tell the whole world/my 27 followers, I'll have to do it.
My mom had Parkinson's and I think she would love to know that i was running this race. I also think she would approve of all the purchases that go along with starting to run: new shoes, moisture wicking running gear (I bet she'd love Lululemon). Because let's face it, that cool running hoodie I'm rocking in the stroller just doesn't fit anymore.
I'm not going to ask you for money or anything, so here's what you can do to help: in the comments, convince Y that he should run with me. His excuse for not running is legit -- running gives him a migraine. However, here's what else is legit: the 200+ dollars we just spent on preventive migraine medicine.
