Number 1 on my 30 Before 30 list is run a 5k. Uggh. Why did I write that? I was never athletic when I was younger. I did belong to the swim team, which I chose based on the fact that it’s an individual sport so I wouldn’t be letting my team down if I didn’t perform well. I couldn’t even run a mile in gym class without stopping. Now I’m into yoga and walking, with the occasional gym class or jog.
I like (well, like is a strong word. I like the feeling that comes after…and all the effects from) jogging because it’s simple and I don’t need anything besides a good sports bra and sneakers. It’s also a nice way to see a new place or get outside and forget about everything else.
In order to meet my goal of
running jogging a 5k before I turn 30 I need to start training now. My birthday is in February and I live in New Jersey where it’s going to get cold fast. On the plus side, this is a gorgeous time of year to be outside.

I started easy with 4 minutes jogging/1 minute walking four times. Pandora‘s hip-hop station kept me going and I plan to add a few more minutes next time.
Cool air and changing colors = smiles
