Eight Weeks Or Bust

Today I registered to participate in the Boselli Foundation’s 5K Mud Run… Yes, a guy who can’t even run a mile is going to attempt to run over three… With the added 30 obstacles mixed in…oh yeah, and mud!

Why?

Well, in order to answer that, I have to tell you about the other “personal challenge” I made that starts tomorrow (at the crack of dawn I might add). This challenge consists of getting off the couch and in condition to run a 5K. This in addition to my normal workouts (yes, I do workout, just can’t seem to run) should get me to my 5K goal in just about eight weeks.

What’s this have to do with the mud run? Well, simply put… I have started my plan to run many many many…many times before. Never resulted in success. At least now I have put some “skin in the game” so to speak.

Further motivation is that my marathon running wife has registered as well. I don’t want her to have to drag me across the finish line now do I?

Plenty of motivation to succeed, but my main reason is that I am tired…tired of being disappointed in my own lack of focus, effort and determination.

I’m going to succeed in this endeavor come HELL or high water!

I’ve had this blog site sitting out here for years just collecting e-dust. I figured I’d put it to good use as a blog/diary of my “journey”.

Tomorrow at five am I begin, I’ll keep you posted on the progress (because I know you are just fascinated).

Cheers
