Today I decided to start getting ready for the 5k I signed up for last week. This means walking for a lot longer than just thirty minutes which is what I usually do.
It took me 113 minutes to walk 3.33 miles on the treadmill. That’s too much; last time I did a 5k I completed it in less than an hour. I know I will never be able to do it in ten minutes, I can’t run that much or that fast but I want to be able to do it in at least an hour.
To reach this goal will mean walking for more than 30 minutes a day and maybe also running. I haven’t done a lot of running since I stopped going to the gym so I should get started on that.
I’m not going to push myself too much, I know my limits but I have to try to make better time. Maybe this helps me get in better shape and even get me to start walking more everyday, at least more than 30 minutes.

I’m an aspiring writer still looking for exactly what I want to write about, with a lot of creativity, imagination and desire to write.
I studied Writing and Rhetoric at Syracuse University where I explored many different sides of writing through my classes and extracurricular activities in order to narrow my search for an identity as a writer.
I have written for Citrus TV Noticias and La Voz magazine, both of which gave me the chance to explore different mediums in which to write in. Through Citrus TV Noticias I also gained experience in translating from English to Spanish and vice versa, which is also something that I would be interested in working on since I am fluent in both of these languages. I was also an intern at Syracuse University Press where I got hands on experience in what goes into actually editing and publishing a book.
Through out the last four years I have faced a lot of challenges, which helped chape the person I am today. After being in a tragic car accident, being in comma, having a Traumatic Brain Injury, and being in therapy for over a year, I am a new me, willing to face challenges and knowing how to deal with them. I want to write about my accident and life after it to help others, show them it can be done and help in any way I can.
