This weekend I experienced working with the ladies from The Flipbelt at the Pittsburgh Marathon Health & Fitness Expo. It was fun, it was busy and the ladies were so great. I hope to work with them again in the future at other events! It is such a great product and I was so honored to help them.
At the expo, I talked to so many people and most were people that had either run the 5k that morning or were going to be running in the Marathon, whether they were running the full or half. It was inspiring and awesome.
I know a few people personally that ran and it was so awesome to read their reactions and pride that they felt afterward.
They inspired me even more. I have decided to train for a 10k that is happening near my house. It is on July 6th so I have 9 weeks to train. I have looked online and I found a customizable training schedule that I am going to start next week. It is an 8 week program that will ease me in to running the 6.2 miles needed to complete the 10k. I am so excited and nervous. I plan on using my compression socks and really diving in full force so that I can prove to myself that I can do this.
Chuck said that he will train and do the 10k with me so we will be training in the evenings since I work in the afternoons. I would have rather done my training in the mornings but if he would like to do it too, I won't be denying him that! I will welcome the company.
I am also starting another fitness challenge with Kat and her Fitness Rebooted group so that will add to my workouts. It will be interesting to see how much my body changes during this training adventure. Hopefully it makes me stronger and leaner. This will take me to the point of my brother's wedding so the timing is perfect!
