I mean, I can’t suck it up at the race and expect to walk into class Monday morning with my head held high. I have a goal (I’m too embarrassed to share it) and I will achieve it, come hell or high water.

How to run a 5K:

Sign up to run our race because, really, you need us to research your weird runner injuries so when you come see me in a few years I know how to treat you. Plus you get a shirt.
Blue looks good on everyone.
Also, how cute is my classmate who gave all of valentines? Seriously. Cute.
Now go out and run.
