I have been absent for a while due to being busy and being in the process of getting new flooring in our house. With an asthmatic and allergy prone child it's been high time. With our two story house however, it's going to be a 'production'. We'll have to vacate at least for two weeks and pack a lot of things as if we're moving. There are only certain things they will pick up and move for you when they lay their tile and laminate.
So in the vein of trying to do something interesting, I entered the Club Chronicle Team Zen challenge and I and 10 others got picked out of a 130 people! They had intended to pick just 6 but they had a hard time choosing so they picked a few more, amongst them yours truly!
What does that mean? Well, we're all going to train to run (or walk or crawl take your pick) Austin's Trail of Lights 5K that will be held in December. This morning we had our first official meet up at Auditorium Shores here at Town Lake, aka Lady Bird Lake. Now, I'm still tired and sore but I really like my team mates and I think it's great to have an instant support team to exercise with. Running is no fun when you're running alone! And I need to get in shape.
The kicker is that each contestant/participant needs to keep a blog and even a video blog if you're so inclined chronicling your life up to the 5K. Then, if you make it through the finish line (and only then!) can people vote for their favourite contestant and she/he will win the grand prize. For now, we're just hoping to be able to keep up the exercising!!
Anyhow, this falls under the category "and for something completely different"! I'll put the Chronicle blog in my link once they've assigned it to us. Sigh...phooy...my legs feel heavy already!
Still, it's going to be good fun I think and I really like the group dynamic already.
Wish me luck, egg me on, vote for me when the time comes!!
I'll be off and running (hardeharhar)!!
