I mentioned that when I was ready, I would post my running goal here.
It happens that the well-known Komen Race for the Cure®, part of the largest series of 5K runs/fitness walks in the world, is just around the corner and, of course, is beckoning for participants! Teams are forming, t-shirts are being ordered, and the whole thing is dangling in front of my face offering opportunity. And, it has been a ten year hiatus since my last run. Seems the perfect venue to serve as entry point for getting back into the running regime. I have missed the routine of training, especially the rhythmic breathing of fresh air. And knitters, let me tell you, one can do a lot of planning of their projects while on these fun runs!
So, with the decision made, in honor of loved ones, I will be taking this on. With no other time frame in mind but to finish, wish me luck! I do hope to get a picture at the end.

You’re so brave. Many of my friends love running too, and are training for 5K races as well. I hate running, but I can understand how many love it. I guess it brings back painful memories of gym class at school. I would love to be more sporty though, and admire people who have the fortitude to train and keep at it. So all the best for your new goal.
Yes, Agnes I also recall painful memories of gym class. I just put those memories aside. I am not sure how brave I am. I am noticing I cannot sit for as long as I could when I was longer, my body gets too stiff and sore so really my running is to help my knitting! Agnes, I am well into the fret sweater! I may post something later this weekend. It is such an interesting project! Again, I thank you for the inspiration!

Reopening a chapter in your life …. How rewarding! Good luck with your training and the race and Enjoy!!
It is fairly interesting that I’ve missed it so, as I do NOT consider myself an athlete, however I notice how much happier I am with running in my life. And, I am also very interested in including my running experiences and/or thoughts in my blog. Poetry, too. I am near retirement and I don’t know exactly where I am headed in life but these things are important to me so, I guess they find themselves, here. Now, I am looking for your blog but you must be sending me your comments through email? I’ve been mostly in writing mode here on wordpress but soon to become more of a reader. Thank you for your good cheer.
