The Start of a New Beginning...I Think

Ok, well, I previously posted one of my goals for the summer was to start exercising so that I can run the 5K with my family in December. We had a sleepover with the Lemond's last night, and she is training for a half marathon. She is doing the program, Couch to 5K, and has been trying to get me to do it with her group. I refused! She is on week 6, but offered to run day 1 with me today. I agreed to try it after MUCH persuasion. Ha! I had no clothes to run in, so I borrowed a sports bra, shorts, and tennis shoes from her. Eight and a half is my shoes size, and all she had for me to wear was a 7 1/2--needless to say, my toes cramped the whole way. I did it!!! I was exhausted, hurting, nauseated, and dizzy, but I did it!! Amanda has always pushed me to give a little more in many areas of my life, and has been a constant encouragement for me. Amanda, I am truly blessed by you!! So proud of myself, but not really looking forward to Saturday when I must do it again. I will try to keep you updated.

8 runs of 60 seconds, with 90 minute walks in between! Yikes! For some this a breeze, but something I felt was impossible for me. Keep in mind, I have never ran a day in my life! HUGE, HUGE, day!!



After..check out the doo! :) Forced a smile!
