Over the last couple of years, I've talked about getting in shape and finally last November I stuck with my plan. The thought of running again really didn't cross my mind, I couldn't imaging trying to run carrying all of that extra weight. But as the weather changed from winter to spring and now summer, I starting thinking that with all the weight I've lost, I might just be able to start running again. As you know on May 15th I ran my first 5k in years and I had a great time, well, it was hot as Hades but I still felt a sense of accomplishment for finishing in 32 minutes and 20 seconds. I actually ran this race because I was prepping for the Race and Relax 5K event being held by Lorraine and Christie. They were organizing a "get moving" event for local bloggers to encourage us to get moving. Well, that was just the motivation I needed to start running again. That and the fact that after the race we were going to have brunch together and receive a spa certificate.
Well on June 5th we all ran, walked and wogged our butts off! I am happy to report that finished my race in 30 minutes and 17 seconds - a whole 2 minutes faster than my last race!
