Bear Country Boot Camp – 5K Training

Bear Country Boot Camp – 5K Training

It was a cold Saturday morning… I lined up at the starting line with about 70 people… mostly strangers. I could tell by looking at their twiggy legs that I was going to finish in the back of this pack… but I didn’t know how badly I would actually finish. High 60s out of 70… I was greatly out run by people more than double my age. Now first off… good for them! But I realized just how out of shape I had let myself get…it was time to get on my A game!

I got hooked on the Biggest Loser…I started spinning…doing yoga…cutting back on bacon and craptastic food…and GASP! I cut back on my alcohol consumption. I’m feeling great…but what will really help my ego is the ability to run a 5K in 27 minutes! 5K training is about to begin and I’m taking prisoners! Coworkers… friends… fellow Bear Country DJs (some not so happy about it) have been enlisted to train with me too!

AND If you are looking to run a 5K too…I invite you to train along with us! Starting March 25th Bear Country Boot Camp begins! 6 weeks to train for the Kringle Candle Chase on May 5th in Bernardston! I’ll be posting a couch to 5K training plan that I snagged from the Biggest Loser website…this will be the plan DJs will be following…we invite you to follow too! PLUS – I have aquired a video camera…my co workers may hate it…but I’ll be “vlogging” our experiences/different kinds of work outs we try to boost our stamina…prepare for comical moments!

WHO IS WITH ME!!!
