Day 1- Many Challenges

Standard

Well it’s finally here! Day 1 of the Slice of Life Challenge. This is my first time participating so I am nervous and excited at the same time. March is my busiest month at school between report cards, music concert, assessments, March is Reading Month, and parent teacher conferences, so this will be a challenge, but one I am excited to take on.

On top of this challenge I have a personal challenge of trying to run a 5k. It’s not that far, a little over three miles but I would like to be able to run the entire time. I have never been a runner, so this is truly another challenge for me. I was in Disney last week for mid-winter break and they had one of their races during that week. I talked with many participants later in the day and it sounded fun. I didn’t think it was something that I could ever imagine doing , but my very supportive husband convinced me I had time to train and I could walk part of it, if I couldn’t run all  of it.

So as I start my day, writing this morning and run/walk this afternoon and teach in between I am ready and energized to take on the challenges that await me this month.

Have a great day!

    We must have just crossed paths at Disney as we left the day before the race to come home from our honeymoon.
    You’ll be glad you wrote this month!

  2. It sounds like, while it will be busy, you will have a very fulfilling March! I am part of the #SOL17 Welcome Wagon! I am so glad that you are joining us! Good luck with the running! We have many goals in common 🙂

  3. As I read your descriptions about yourself, I could have written your post! My conferences are Thursday and Friday. Usually Spring Break would fall during March but this year it is in April so it is a month that so much learning has to happen, making it extra busy. But I am so glad both of us are writing! I actually do better when I have more to do. I hope you’ll feel the same! And happy running, too. I did my first 5K last year to support my school. Because it was a very hilly course, I walked 50%. But did the same race again this Fall and ran 75%. Soon I’ll do a 100% run 5K but not growing up as a runner, walking works for me!

  4. You are doing two challenges that support each other at the same time! While training, you will create moments to write about and you will have time to think about your posts while running. When writing, you will be able to reflect on your training and progress toward that 5K. A perfect combination!
