I did it!

I did a 5k in my basement.

This is probably the proudest I have ever been of myself.

About a minute in...I wanted to give up the ghost, but I knew I couldn't. I knew you were all cheering me on and I heard you LOUD and CLEAR.

It was hard (and I walked it!). It took me 75:53. Which is almost twice as long as I would like for it to take in it's on like Donkey Kong! Training has begun.

Its weird because it's like my new goal and other people are dependent on me for it and even though I am publicly acknowledging it, I am hoping that I will just forget that weight loss is really the point for me and that will just be a side benefit. After all, my main goal is to take my kids to Six Flags and PARTICIPATE in their day..June is Summer. Six Flags is open in June, right?

My kids will not hug me cause the stench exuding from me is unrecognizable, so I am off to bathe.

Thank you to all who believed that I could do it and "can it" to those who doubted!

133 days to Race for the Cure
18 more 5k's to run before THE race


  1. Way to go! You are totally gonna rock it!

  2. Girl I NEVER doubted you. From here the time will just whither away. Pretty soon you will have to practice your 5k AND do another activity, just to get in a good workout!!! ;-)
