Journey to a 5K, June 16, 2010

Week 2
Day 1

I started this a week ago you would have never made me believe I'd be walking/running a mile, let alone two or more. Heck, two weeks ago you'd never had made me believe I'd run three mailboxes.

Well, this morning I ran/walked 3.1 miles!!!!!

Oh. My. Gosh. Did you get that?? I ran/walked 3.1 miles!!!!!

I went to Phidippedes at Ansley Mall yesterday and got fitted for some running shoes. I felt so much better. My feet did end up hurting, but Lori said to expect that because the shoes I have are making my feet do what they are supposed to do, so my muscles are being used differently/correctly.

I would like to say I did it without complaining. I didn't. The last 3/4 to 1 mile I thought I might pass out. I didn't. Oh my gosh!!! I did 3.1 miles!

I'm just a tad bit excited. Wow!

My goal was to be doing 3.1 miles in 10 weeks. I did it in one! I am looking forward to being able to run more than walking. Woohoo!!!!


  1. you did do very well this morning , with your new sneaks and sexy workout outfit.. Looking Hot.. But to be exact more like the entire last mile with the complaints, but like I said doesn't phase me a bit.. I hear it each and everyday from all my patients. FYI remember the complaining just makes me push you harder.. I told you I was not going to let you fail yourself this morning.. Great job.

  2. Hi honey, just wanted to say how proud I am of you!!!! Love ya
