  • Couch to 5K: Let the Countdown Begin

    Michele Broxton & Lorrita Hedge-Mace (Photo: Michele Broxton)So we’re 34 days from the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation 5K in September and I can safely say that the thought has crossed our minds to panic. Susan and Dana are doing fabulously. They run like gazelles being chased by a lion and cross the finish line smiling. Melpo is adorable and will finish her scheduled 5K training two weeks prior to the deadline. I’m almost done with the training but am hanging on by a veritable thread. Life just gets really big sometimes, you know, so big that it tries to push everything else out of its way.

    Anyhew, it was a good week in that we all kept going and we survived another three training days of our feet hitting the sidewalk. The bad news is that I’m drinking soda like the exhausted mother that I am and talked my husband into bringing me some of the little mini chocolate donuts.
