I typically write about social media marketing related topics but today I am sharing something a bit different and bit more personal! I decided to run my first 5k, The SUPERHERO 5K, to benefit LoneStar CASA! This is a big deal to someone who literally lasts 2 minutes on a treadmill- I am not cardio fit even for a former Certified Personal Trainer!
Monday I started my “training” so to speak with my son (almost 5) who says he wants to take part. And I have not even told him we are both going to dress up as SUPERHEROS! He rode his bike, I ran-ish. He lasted 1.2 miles! So, I had an excuse to head back home. Here we are red faced and pooped after finishing:
I will periodically share our “training” with you Via Twitter, FaceBook, and this blog in hopes to inspire others wanting to try their first 5k! If you would like to join me, please comment below and I can share my (very easy) training schedule that only will require 10 minutes of your time the first week…. we will build from there to achieve a 30 minute jog = 5k!

I do hope you share this post as well as I am seeking sponsors for the 5K to be held on 11/1! If you, your business, or someone you know would like to be a sponsor, please let me know. Sponsorships starts at on $100. You may contact me (form at bottom of the post) or visit LoneStarCASA.org

The SUPERHERO 5K benefits LoneStar CASA. CASA believes every child who’s been abused or neglected deserves to have a dedicated advocate speaking up for their best interest in court, at school and in our community. To accomplish this, CASA educates and empowers diverse community volunteers who ensure each child’s needs remain a priority in an over-burdened child welfare system. When the state steps in to protect a child’s safety because the people responsible for protecting them have not, a judge appoints a trained CASA volunteer to make independent and informed recommendations and help the judge decide what’s best for the child.
Here is a video from last years 5k
