I am not really a sporty person. I am definitely not a runner. So what made me sign up for the Pinkathon - a run to support Breast Cancer? Well to begin with I might not be sporty but I am pretty committed to the idea of fitness, actually 'fun fitness'. What can be better than running/walking with a bunch of buddies for a good cause?
Another confession - running a marathon has long been on my bucket list. I never did it because I had this very embarrassing vision of everyone having wrapped and gone home while I trudged on to the finish line by the afternoon. Or worse still, falling down from fatigue while people around me ran on!
Here, I get to choose between a 3 km, 5km or 10 km run. I intend to go for 5kms, which is a very doable distance for me. This is really as close as I'll ever get to running a marathon.
Yeah I'm looking forward to it. There's still about two months to go so I have time to get my act together.
Wish me luck, people.
