Off the couch!

My brother Michael and I will be running the Cooper River Bridge 10K on April 5th. I used to run... before I started having children some 14 years ago. I am not a stranger to running, just a distant relative.
In order to get my non-running form in shape I started a training program titled "From Couch to 10k in 10 weeks". Today was my second day. This first week is pretty easy; 4-6 days of two miles walking/running an 1/8 of a mile at a time. 2 days down...68 to go!

Tae Kwon Do

Tonight was our first family Tae Kwon Do class. Taekwondo is a Korean martial art. It uses the legs much more than Japanese Karate. We learned some kicks and punches and even did a few sit-ups and push-ups. I am already feeling sore, tomorrow I'll be referring to it as Tae Kwon DoOohhh! We are all glad that we were the only students attending tonight. None of us had any style and one of us fell during a kick. We all looked a little dorky, but we'll get better!
