237. A Fine Mess
The farthest I have ever run at one time, without stopping, is 3 miles. 3.1 miles equals a 5k, and I have never done one. Since I moved back to Missouri, running has ceased to be a part of my regular routine. I am totally out of shape, and I really really want to get back to a time when I go at least 3 times a week.
Today, I believe I found my motivation.
The Color Run.
It's a national event, with dates throughout the country all year, but none of them are in St Louis. My closest options are Chicago and Kansas City, which happens to work out perfectly, because I am in serious need of a road trip.
The dates for Chi and KC are both in June, which gives me a few months to get back into a shape other than "blob". We're planning to look for a new apartment around the same time, so I hope that won't throw a wrench in my plans. I think maybe I need this.
