Wine Wednesday

(similar shirts found here)

First things first, I am not a runner.  Running is something I have tried very hard to avoid for years now.  That being said, a good cause and a rather persuasive boyfriend convinced me to go against my gut and do something crazy.  I signed up for a 10k!  The last weekend in October James and I, along with a few other friends will be running to support Run to Honor.  James has conjured up a training schedule for us that he claims will turn a couch potato (assuming he meant me... thanks sweetie!) into a runner.  We started small this week working towards the goal of a 5k.  Below is our 1st round training schedule:

1Rest or run/walk1.5 m runRest or run/walk1.5 m runRest1.5 m run30- 60 min walk

Any runners have some motivational tricks or words of wisdom?  I am needing it, along with the shirt above!
