First 5K Is A Week Away!

I am in my eighth week of the C25K program and I am so proud that I've been keeping up with it. This week, I sent in the registration form for a 5K near me next Saturday morning. I will be short one day in my training, so I am planning to do only two days of Week 8 and then have next Saturday's run be my graduation day from the program. Currently, I'm up to running 2.75 miles so getting to 3.1 should not be a problem during the next week. My pace is a little slow, but I figure I can work on that after this first race. I also have my second race planned for the end of June.  :)

Belated Anniversary Gift

This past Saturday, I made dinner and as we were finishing eating, Jim surprised me with a belated anniversary gift - tickets to see Huey Lewis and the News.  :)  I am so excited to go see them! I know, I am such a dork! I used to listen to them when I was young and still love their music. They come to Detroit for a summer concert every year it seems, but we live over an hour away from the venue and just haven't made it to see them. Well, rather, I probably haven't bugged Jim enough to take me. But, it must have sunk in! This year, the concert falls on a Thursday night in July, so we are planning to take a vacation day Friday and hopefully enjoy the day out on our boat if the weather cooperates.
