Training & Running a 5K

As a former runner/jogger I’ve completed my share of 5K, 10K and a couple of marathons throughout the years. Life happens and the running went by the wayside leaving me walking merrily along my way.

30+ years later, my daughter decides to become a certified running coach and was willing to set up a training plan just for me. Embracing the challenge, my training plan began last June and, to be honest, it wasn’t a pretty start. I followed the plan, adapted when necessary, and stuck with it. The short exercise videos were extremely helpful to avoid knee pain and other injuries.

I really thought my 5K running days were in the rear view mirror and the idea of a running coach was a foreign concept. In the end, I found the process to be exceptionally helpful by keeping me accountable and safely focused on the goal. Thank you to my personal running coach, Elizabeth Meyer!

Here is a short video trailer of my family supported 5K:

To have canceled or cancelled? That is the question.

Canceled or cancelled is the past tense of the verb to cancel. Both spellings are correct; Americans favor canceled (one L), while cancelled (two Ls) is preferred in British English and other dialects. However, there is only one correct spelling of the word cancellation, no matter where you are.
