One of my Mom's uber-awesome running friends told me that the only way she knew she was going to run was by actually signing up for 5Ks.
Ipso Facto, I signed up for TWO just to be safe.
(There aren't any in more in my area I can make it to this summer, so I'm going to my "town-away-from-home-town-town")
They are in late July/Early August so I will have time to train!
