My sister-in-law is an avid runner, but because of her ever-growing baby bump (yay little buddy, I can't wait 'til you get here!).....I was asked to fill in as the running partner :-/
I think I can take it...right? I mean, I subjected myself to the pain of the Chiro-Pirate.... so this should be a piece of cake...?
I figure putting this on my blog will motivate me...or just hold me accountable that I said, publicly, that I was going to do it :-/
Feel free to comment below with some encouraging words, raps or ryhmes you wanna make up to motivate me...raps are actually preferred...thanks!
Here's a plan...maybe?

Seriously....please give me some supportive comments....OR I will be forced to get my motivation and tips from less than 1 minute of Youtube clips from one of my favorite T.V. characters....Micheal Scott, who hosted his own 5k "Fun Run" Race for a cure for a disease....that already has a cure...
So that's the plan. One of my closest friends is a track/cross-country coach (who also happens to be growing a baby bump of her own)....What do you think, Christine? Is it do-able? Any suggestions besides what Michael Scott recommends.. like to eat lots of fettuccine alfredo RIGHT before I run....and that I gotta have some sort of cause to run for....so I will run for the eradication of splinters...ya know, like the kind you get from picnic tables....or decks or something- who likes those, right? This is a cause that reaches beyond the boundaries of religion, race, culture...no one likes a splinter.
Waiting expectantly to be motivated by you :-)
One of the only ways I can do this, is if I take you with me....so expect some running video logs :-)
