So I'm going to run a 5K in October in honor of Steve Lawlor. Steve was the head of Special Operations for Boston EMS and an incredibly nice guy who died of cancer last year at 50. There's a City Run, which is going to benefit his charity and I decided that was as good a cause as any. So I am running this with my friend Chuck, who appeared as equally out of shape as me. However, it seems that he's hardcore training and I am getting worried.
So I went for a run today. I have no idea how far it was, as the ambulance took me most of the way. Just kidding. I ran/walked for 35 minutes and I realized something. What the hell am I thinking? 5K seems so small....around 3 miles. It seems easy on the eliptical, but no so much on the actual street. I'm so screwed....but I'm going to do it. This might be as close to a marathon as I get.
