I, Sarah Victoria Carpenter, will run a 5k in 6 months.
In 2009 my friend Savahna ran her first 5k and I was inspired. After watching so many people from my church and hometown run, I decided maybe I could to. I’ve tried the couch to 5k app a few times since but I’m not a runner. Never have been, even when I was a tiny ballerina, I hated running.
Recently a friend of mine decided to focus on his health and made a decision for life change. He inspired me to get off the couch and lace up my running shoes. I had to make a change. I began praying about what I would run or how I would change my life for the better. Gods strength is the only reason I can wake up and put on my shoes in the mornings, evenings, or afternoons, some days I do all three. I’ve always said that when it was time to drop some weight hat God would help me. Well folks, It’s time!
I’m about a month in and can only run for about a one minuet, but I’m proud that I can even run that.
I’ve prayed and thought about what 5k’s I want to run.
If your around these areas during these dates, I’d love to have your support!
Want to run with me? That would be even greater!
This is going to be a long road but one I’m so excited to do.
I can’t even imagine what it will feel like to cross the finish line!
