Almost started walking...

So I haven't done any walking yet this week... but I really felt the urge to do it yesterday (which is good for me and my need to get going).  So today I plan on going to the gym in our apartments and hitting up the treadmill (possibly the ellipitcal if I'm feeling good after 30 minutes of walking). 

I do admit... I ordered the Fitbug (which is a pedometer) through my job and this new wellness program.  I have kind of been waiting for it to come but I want to get this walking going.  Especially because I was invited to do a 5k with a local running club out in Georgetown.  They do these 5k's every third Saturday a month and its only $1, which goes to help pay for costs at the park they do this at.  Plus the kids are free, so I figure I can take my two oldest kiddos with me to enjoy some walking/running.  The next one coming up is on the 21st.  I think I'm going....... help me prepare for another 5k.

The BOOB's ladies in the Dallas area plan to attend the Color Run.  I really want to do this one too... and plan to pay for my fee this coming weekend, so I will be there.  This same 5k is being done in Austin on February 4th as well, but thats just too close of a date... I need more time to prepare with just starting out.  LOL.  Plus I figured it would be more fun with other friends.  So I will be attending the one in Dallas.  Can't wait.....

Never thought that I may enjoy running or even do a 5k, but its a possibility.  Lets see how this goes...

I guess we need to decide who all is in... I haven't really heard from or talked to anyone else about this since I asked on FB!
