I did it, bloggers.  I signed up for my first ever 5k today.  I've been training for the last few months for it and yesterday ran for 20 minutes without stopping.  The front of my calves can tell you all about it today.

I'm feeling really good about it.  I think it's an excellent sign that this particular 5k is donut related.  Y'all, I feel so strongly about donuts.  Everytime I go to Germany I find the Dunkin Donuts there and buy at least half a dozen.  Then at least three more for the plane ride home.  Everytime I visit my parents in the States one of the first stops is the Krispy Kreme.  I don't even want to go unless the "Hot and Fresh" sign is on for donuts straight out of the fryer.  Dirty.  And I love it.

Wait, this post was supposed to be about running and fitness.  Oops.  No can do when donuts are involved.


  1. That is awesome!! You will do amazing!! Can't wait to hear about it when you're done!!
    I have only walked a few, I need to start running, I have a strong desire to run but I only last a few minutes :) I may just have to try again! Thanks for the inspiration!
    And the donuts look so yummy!

  2. Do we ever have the place to take you next time you're in the DC area! Chris and I said on Sunday when we were there that we want to take you and the hubs to Tabard Inn for brunch and that was before you proclaimed your love of donuts. This place makes their own and they fry them fresh as your order them so they're always hot & fresh. See my tweet from Sunday morning. A-MAZ-ING!!! And it was a super cute place too. Come and visit and we'll treat you!!!

    Oh, and awesomeness on the 5K!

    (You can tell what has my focus too!)


You are a lovely person.
