Treadmills and Tears

"When I see your face
There's not a thing that I would change
Cause you're amazing
Just the way you are"
Just a little Bruno Mars, and so began the water works... did I mention that I was running on the treadmill at the time? It wasn't about being sexy or about being in love with someone, but I WAS AMAZING just the same!

In my head...I sounded like Forrest Gump... I was Run - Ning!

It only lasted about 45 seconds and at about 3.4 mph, but it was slower than a sprint, faster than a was ME on the Move! It's a weird mixture of pride and sadness. It's "I can do this!, Why in hell haven't I done this?"

I walked/ran for 20 minutes tonight. I made it .889 miles. I burned approximately 75 calories. (which seems like so little for such an effort).

Today...I drank 104oz of water...I did not count my calories.

In two days, I will walk a 5k. No matter how long it takes, no matter how slow I go. This will be my baseline. 133 days to Komen.


  1. Good for you! Keep going... Have a great 5k-and have fun!

  2. OMG, love that song. And it makes me cry so don't feel bad.

    That's some awesomeness! Keep it up!

  3. Right on! You're so gonna be rocking that 5K in June!

  4. You can totally do this, chick!

  5. Good on you, you are right you can do it as everything on treadmill is easy.
    Good luck.
