As I sign up for my 5k run, the extra weight I have (now) really made me question my running form. As I attempted to run, my ankles or my knees would feel uncomfortable, so I decided to post some great youtube videos on proper running that I found to be so valuable. Once I followed their advice, running has become so much more easier for me.
I signed up for a running group at blackgirlsrun.com and still unsure about which 5K event I will run for 2013, but I have given myself 16 weeks to be sure I "run" for the entire event.
So wish me luck and follow me to see my success.
