In doing some spring cleaning, coming back to the surface of my desk has been “The Couch-to-5K Running Plan.” Meanwhile, I’ve become a Facebook fan of The Color Run (tagline, “Too Much Fun”), and several times a week they send updates of new runs acround the USA. They have one in the works for Washington this fall. You run 5K like usual, but they dump different-colored paint on you as you run. Meanwhile, runner friends like colleague Stephanie (or I should say, Stephanie Sl., as there are now at least five Stephanies at work) email you links to awesome, even-to-people-who-don’t-run races like Maryland’s “Run For Your Life” zombie 5K. Meanwhile, Washington weather gets more beautiful each week, and running a 5K is one of my 2012 goals. Hmm.
Should I hold out for a Krispy Kreme 5K?
