Looking to try something new.It has been a while since I last posted, but I am excited about a new challenge I'm giving myself. The past year and a half has been crazy. We had a son born and he's now one and a handful, but loves to be outside. My daughter is almost 4 and really funny to be around. She's very active too. I've made a major switch in my school moving from 5th grade to grades 7 and 8. Middle school kids are the devil. We did loose a member of our family recently. Our dog, Skye, had to be put down due to cancer. That has been tough on K and I in different ways. Between family, school, coaching, home improvement projects, we have stayed pretty busy.I have decided to train for something though. I know that I'm not built for distance running. I have no ambition to be a marathoner or a triathlete. I was built big and slow. But one thing on my "bucket list" is to do a simple 5k. Well, last weekend my loving wife signed us up for a 5k in Stillwater, MN in the middle of August, right before my football season begins. Since we've already paid for this now, I have some more motivation to actually follow through with this. I also have time to "train". I have been doing our school districts Steps and Ounces program these last few weeks and have done pretty well with that (64 oz of water and 10,000 steps/day). So to prepare for this running "stuff" I went out and got some Wigwam Distance socks that are very comfortable for running. I know people will laugh thinking that this is just a measly little 5k which most people could do in their sleep. This is going to challenge me physically and mentally. I've trained for sports, but never to run. I'll keep you all posted with my successes and failures.Deacon
