Running is something I have always loved, but I got busy with a million other things and forgot about it. In late 2010 I hit a weight I never thought I would hit and decided it's time for a change. I started the C25K program. In February 2011 I ran my first 5K and by summer I had dropped 21 pounds. Up until this past winter I kept the weight off. I got stuck in a runt! I got lazy! I gained back 11 pounds! EKK!
Thanks to a friend talking about running her first half I found some motivation. On May 26 I signed up to do my first half and start running again. YEAH! I just completed Week 5 and feel amazing! It was a rough start, but gets easier each day. The weight has been slow about coming off, but I am not worried. I know I just need to keep going...
I actually logged 18.35 miles of running/walking this week. I keep a notebook and write down everything. It's the best thing for me--it holds me accountable. I decided blogging would be another way to hold myself accountable and track my journey.
Day 1 (5/26)
Day 30 (6/24)
I am happy to be running again. Each run I gain more confidence, feel happier and am getting my mojo back! If you are sitting on the couch wondering "can I do this" I say YES YOU CAN!
I got my Race Day shirt ready!
