My First "Real" Race! I am so excited!!!

I am doin' it!!!  That is the slogan for the Forest City Road Race on April 28th, and that is what I am telling people: I'm doin' it!!  This will be my first "real" race; I have done many virtual races, but never wanted to do a real race all by myself.  I was invited to this one by a friend, and I figured why not?

I have a lot of training to do to be able to run 5k without any walk breaks, but I have until April 28th to train.  I won't neglect my strength training (still my favourite exercise), but now I have to add more running.  Let's hope spring gets here soon so I can do more training outside!!

The day of the race will be the first anniversary of my mother's passing, so I will be running in honour of her.  <3 Love you and miss you Mom <3

Follow my 5k training on here on my blog and on my Facebook page My Journey To Getting Fit & Healthy.  I also welcome any advice from all of you seasoned runners!!  :)
