Going the Distance

I decided this week that I am going to run a 10K. "Run", of course being a euphemism for "complete". The race is going to be in May, right before Lisa's wedding in which I have the all important role of bridesmaid (bridesmatron?, ugh that sounds old!) Anyways, I have wanted to do a 10K for a while but now I think I'm ready to commit. The wedding is extra incentive,if I gain even a pound before that wedding I will not fit into my dress... so it's off to the treadmill I go. And no, this is only like 5% vanity, it's 95% not wanting to have to alter my dress! Tips anyone? So far, I can run 1/2 a mile. I can "complete" 5K.
