Run, Forrest!

I am a horrible runner. I don’t even think you would technically classify what I do as ‘running’ - it’s more of a jog. I have been very slowly getting the teensiest bit better this summer but I’m never going to win any races. That’s actually what I like about running though, I don’t have to beat anyone else and I can still win if I improve my time. I’m running a 5K next Saturday. I ran my very first 5K ever back in June and it wasn’t pretty. I had to walk for part of it and it took over 39 minutes. Ugh. I’m not sure what my goal is this time. Originally I wanted to get below 35 minutes, but I ran 3.1 miles at the gym last night in under 34. Yes that was a treadmill, but I usually go faster outside as long as it’s not too steep and this course is super flat. Considering I only signed up for this as something to keep my mind off my vacation, I think I am going to not set a goal and just run for the ‘fun’ of it. Also, don't tell George Lucas, because he is a copyright Nazi, but the Star Wars bachelorette party invites are pretty much done. BOOYA!

How the hell am I supposed to crash to dork brigade party if the writing is so small that I can't see the time and place!?

What about a Star Wars 5k? I'd go as a group of running Storm Troopers.
