Contender: Alissa. Secretary by day, couch-potato by night. Athletic ability consists of daily walking a mile to work, and hiking the occasional fourteener. Would prefer eating live spiders to running.
Challenge: Bolder Boulder 10K Road Race. Fifth largest road race in the world with over one million participants in it’s 30+ year history.
Goal: to run half of the 10K distance
Timeline: seven weeks
Why: Partly, peer pressure. Boulder is considered by many to be the running capital of the world. For some reason beyond my comprehension, people actually enjoy running.
Partly, to see if I can make a goal and stick with it. Can I really push through and do something I dislike so much? That which doesn’t kill you makes you stronger – so my options are getting stronger or being with Jesus. A win-win.
Partly because if I can learn to love running, anyone can.
