J.P. Morgan Corporate Challenge
Signed up for my first 5k race
I just signed up for the J.P. Morgan Corporate Challenge 5k race which will run on June 20, 2013. This is the first race that I have done since high school, many many years ago. Over the next few weeks, I'll be training to make sure that I have a great race. I am not in it to win the race, just to have a great finish and a fun time on the way.
I just downloaded the 5K Training For Beginners - From Couch To 5k Runner In 8 Weeks Or Less by Jago Holmes, on my Kindle to help me get started on my journey. It's a good investment since I was able to borrow it for free since I have Amazon Prime. The reviews and ratings are good. I downloaded the preview and think it's a good read for the month.
I'll update this blog on my journey to get to the finish line. I am not taking this race lightly. I want to make sure that the race is fun and that in the process I get into better shape. One other positive side effect is that it will make the morning run to the train station a little bit easier.
