My friend Sarah Jolley has inspired me. For one of her classes she has to do a BHAG (big hairy audacious goal) so she is running the SLC half marathon. I would link the post to her blog but sorry dude's her blog is private and only cool peeps like me get to read it :) But you can read about her running journey here. I think her running blog idea is super cute!

Since having a baby has done absolutely nothing good for my thighs and/or abdomen I need to get back in shape. So I have decided to do a BHAG of my own and run a 10k. I know, not quite as audacious as Sarah's half marathon, but I suppose I am not as audacious as Sarah. It seems I am in fact about 7 miles less audacious.

I start my 8 week training today! Today I run 1.5 miles and since I haven't ran at all in over a year... I'm a little nervous. I know it's going to suck.

I wish chubby was "in". But then again I'd have to buy a whole new wardrobe...


  1. im helping my work put on it's 2nd cinco de mayo 5k if you wanna run that as a warm up to your 10k? best of luck to you on your BHAG! =)

  2. i also liked sarah's bhag thing. maybe i should pick something. i wanna be in the cool crowd too. ps good luck. i'll run with you if you'd like.

  3. aaaaaaaahhhhhhhh i feel so special that you mentioned me by name! Part of my training is to run a I would love to run with you too! Me, you and mara = party! you can do it!!

  4. Awesome Leslie! I am so impressed. Before you know it, you'll have your rockin' body back! UM 10k sounds so intimidating. more than I have done! But You have inspired me to do the same... someday... But I WILL do it!
