I decided to run on the gym treadmill today since I was going to be out and about with errands. Much to my surprise, there were a couple of shiny new treadmills! The "ride" was nice and smooth.
I received a phone call from a former coworker asking me to join her in the Susan G. Komen 3 day walk for breast cancer. It's in November and I would have to raise money to do this, but I'm also planning to run in the first San Jose Rock N' Roll Marathon with my brother in October. I'm not sure if I can do both.
The reason why my former coworker wants to do the 3 day walk is because she had just learned that another former coworker was recently diagnosed with breast cancer. :sad: It's such a shock because this lady is the most fit, healthful, exuberantly happy person you would ever meet. I never worked with her (I was her replacement when she quit) but she did join us for girls night out.
Things that went right:
*4 miles on the treadmill at the gym, HIIT-- I did it in just over 42 minutes.
*It was cool that my friend considered me to participate in the 3 day walk with her.
Things that need improvement:
*I always want to go faster on the gym treadmill...
*Cures for cancer...
