C25K Overview {living outside the stacks}

Running, Running…

I keep hearing that refrain from the Black Eyed Peas every time I get ready to run. Is there a song that gets you pumped for a run? I think it’s time for me to revamp my playlist, but I digress. A little over 6 years ago, I was a […]

Mamavation Monday

Last week I celebrated the completion of my first 5K (which I walked) and this week, I celebrate the start of C25K.  My goal is to actually run the next 5K that I sign up for (barring any freak health accidents).  I use the Indie Christian podcast created by Chris, […]

Shhhh! I’m Calling It Quits

This morning I decided that I have had enough of this stopping and starting and stopping and starting, I need to finish this C25K program NOW.  I’ve been trying to complete a week of running since 9 February.   Everything seems to be conspiring against me ~ the weather, my health, […]

Mamavation Monday

Last week was a good week for me ~ I didn’t lose any weight but I registered for my first 5K. Yay me! I’ll be running in the Children’s Advocacy Center 6th Annual Moonlight Run on Sunday, 25 April. I’m pretty excited. This will be my first “formal” run since […]

Woo Hoo! I Ran Today

I’m fresh off my first day of the C25K program, as in I just got home from the track and I wanted to write this post before I lost my endorphin high. When I first arrived at the track, I was a little intimidated for a variety of reasons: ~ […]

I Want to Run a 5k

Yes, I said it. I want to run a 5K. That may not seem like a lot but to someone who has not run in over 13 years, that’s a big deal. I like having a challenge or a goal to accomplish. For the past 30 days it’s been completing […]
