Walking to Running

Well, it has been a while since I last wrote about health and fitness. On July 27th I ran the Nightcrawler 5K here in Tupelo, however the times were never posted because they screwed up on the route for a lot of the runners making them run more than 3.1 miles. Unofficially I finished about 49:20, not bad for a walker. I have since been working to improve on my time around the neighborhood. My goal is to eventually become a full time runner, not a heavy run, more like a 6-7 MPH run. My next 5K race will be the Fall Festival in Booneville, MS which is my parents hometown as well as my brother and his girlfriend’s, I hope to finish that one at 45 mins or better. I recently discovered a nearby park to my neighborhood, we have been living here for 6 years and I now just discovered it, even better there is a trail through a tree line that feeds right into the run/walk path at the park which is a half mile track. Well, that is all I have for this week. Be back next week with another update.
