I thought I'd share our new favorite thing. Well, not really new. Newish. This is from Aldi. It barely lasts an evening around these parts. If you're near an Aldi, pick up a box. You won't regret it!
In other running news, I'm running a 5k on Sunday. I haven't really shared my latest getting in shape stories. There haven't really been any stories. I just sort of started the "Couch to 5k" program a little over a month ago. (It's also known as C25K.) It's been wonderful. I highly recommend it. It's a 9 week program where you start out mostly walking, gradually ease in some jogging with the walking and end up just jogging. I'm currently on Week 6. I probably shouldn't do a 5k just yet, but I had already signed up for it. I feel pretty good about it. I'm up to 25 straight minutes of jogging, so I think I might just be able to run the entire 5k this time around. And my legs feel great. The best thing about the C25K program is the rest. You only run every other day. I think that's the key. Letting your body heal and rest and not pushing too much. If all goes well on Sunday, I'm going to do the Arc 5k on September 10th.
Oh and yet even more running news, Alex's cross-country team has 43 runners on it. It's apparently the largest team in school history. I dare say he's got some great competition this season! It's going to be a fun year. If anyone would like to attend any of his meets, let me know. I'll send a schedule. His first meet is September 14th.
