Good Job. It does get easier as time goes on. The thing is that the oxygen up take gets better faster than the bio-mechanical part. One should not over do the mechanical parts of the body in the developmental process of training. Build a solid base of distance before doing any speed work. Again, Good Job.

I love that adrenaline rush before a race. I've only done the 2 (a 5K and a 10K), and it really is amazing.

Although it does make me need to pee about 100 times beforehand. *sigh*

I can't wait to read how you did!

Go Bree! Races are sooo exciting and addictive - that feeling afterwards, when you're hanging out snacking with all these healthy people is just awesome. I'm so happy for you!!

Ooh I like how you're writing this! I can't wait to read the rest. What a spectacular thing that you've taken on!

Lots of fun to read this! Can't wait for the next installment!

Congrats! Ooh, this is full of suspense! Can't wait to read the rest of the story!

Please tell me you'll be sharing the playlist. I'm about to run my first 5K in just one week!

I just ran my first 5K in June. Now I'm training for the St. Jude Half Marathon here in Memphis. A freakin' half marathon. I couldn't be more pumped! Keep it up!

CONGRATULATIONS!!!! I just ran my first 5k (pushing my son in his stroller) last weekend, and it was SO exhilarating! My parent's sent me flowers, and it felt so good to accomplish something : ) GOOD JOB!!!

Good for you kiddo, I'm so proud!!!

This reminds me of TLF. Oh how I loved those. You write and somehow take us all along with you. I can't wait for the next installment.
