After last year’s successful resolution of running a 5K event every month, I decided to up the ante and double the distance. It was my last-ditch effort to feel like a real runner. I signed up for a 10K the weekend before my 30th birthday and was determined to get my ass back in shape and get ‘er done. My last running event was December 21st and come January, I was determined to start training for my next event. And I did!
