I have no good excuse. Really, I’ve just made some bad eating choices recently. How many times a week are you supposed to eat pizza? Less than three? 😉
Anywho, I am pleased to announce that on October 11th, my Wifey and I are planning to do the Great Columbia Crossing in Astoria, Oregon. It’s a 10K run across the Astoria-Megler bridge! It’s the one time each year that they allow foot traffic on the bridge. I’ve been thinking about doing it for a few years, but thins year, I’ve got the Wifey on board! I have no illusions about coming in first, I just want to do it!
October 11th is exactly 14 weeks away! How do I know that little tidbit of timely information? Because this week we started a “couch to 10K” app which takes 14 weeks. Three times this week, we’ve jog/walked for 30 minutes. Each week the duration increases and amount of time you alternate running or walking changes too. At the end we’re supposed to be fit enough to run a 10K

Yeah, it went up. But an the 10K plan, I have high hopes for next month!
I’ve never run a 10K before, or any lengthy race. Any advice? Comment me!
