5K

Saturday, Luke and I ran a 5K. Well, actually, Luke left me in his dust and finished about 8 or 9 minutes ahead of me. That's ok, though. At least I didn't pass out from lack of oxygen or have a heart attack. I haven't run such a distance (3.1 miles in case you weren't sure) since last year. Boy, did I feel it. Anyway, I was so proud of my little guy! Poor thing would have finished even sooner had he not doubled back a couple of times to make sure I was still behind him. I finally told him not to worry about me and just GO! He was glad to hear that. I'm on the rebound from the last several months now. The past couple of weeks I have exercised at least 3 times a week. I'm really hoping to drop some of these unwanted pounds. Hopefully I can stay consistent with the exercise and stay true to my sugar fast. Maybe I'll even try to continue with 3.1 miles every weekend. That would be nice. As much as I hate running, I mean really hate running, I would really like to be a runner. I would especially really like to look like a runner...long and lean. I'm not into bulk, not even a little. I like the long, lean body that comes with running and pilates. I have a long way to go, but I think I'm on the right track and hoping this is the year for a transformation.

So, what about you? How are your resolutions or goals working out? Have you completely forgotten about them? Or are you on the right track? Please, do tell.

  1. Luke was so proud to wear his shirt w runner bib and be featured on school announcments a few days ago. In fact we read a poem in which a hamster makes a "break for freedom". The Jailbreak Run fit very nicely into the concept!
