Many ladies and gentlemen started training back in November, I think it was, to run this 5k with Shrinking Jeans. Now, you might be wondering why my title says "10k". Easy, I'm a crazy overachiever! Actually, I had originally planned on doing a 1/2 marathon distance today with a friend who is training for a marathon (she ran 15 miles this afternoon-Go Angie!), but injury and a bit of running burnout squashed those plans about 2 months ago.
Thea, Beki and I all decided we would run our 5 and 10k's "together" at 11:00 EST. (We needed to wait for west coast Beki to wake up!) All of us fired up our iPods and took off - Thea in Maryland, me in Michigan, and Beki in Cali! My thoughts all along were to do my 6.2 on the treadmill (Dude, I live in MICHIGAN), but I decided to suck it up (especially after dropping some coin at the running store on cold weather gear yesterday) and run mine outside.

Love to all my peeps running 5k's, 1 mile, a block, 13.1 miles and 26.2 miles this weekend. You ALL make me stronger!
