Guess who ran three miles last night...

... this girl!

Technically I only ran 2.75 miles because the I walked the first lap (quickly) as a warmup lap, but whatever y'all.  I saw this on the screen last night, and I was thrilled.


(And yes, I run a 12-minute mile. I'm slow as Christmas, but I'm still running, and that's all I can really hope for right now. :))

I ran on the track last night for the first time (since high school), and I really loved it - mostly because there were NO HILLS!  And for some reason I was able to zone out a little bit more than I do when I'm running around the pond by the house. 

It was especially encouraging because my 5K is on Saturday, and I was not feeling ready.  Like, at all. 

But you know what? 

I can only do what I can do.  No more, and hopefully no less.  So if I have to take a few one-minute walk breaks, I'm going to take them.  And if I am the last person to cross the finish line, then so be it.  I'm still going to be insanely proud of myself for getting up off the couch and pushing myself far beyond what I thought I was capable of.  And plus...


Right? :)

You are *so* ready for your 5k! Race day adrenaline will add that little something extra to get your through it. But seriously, you're already there! (You're already running faster than I was when I did Couch to 5k!)

I just read ALL of of your weight-loss posts and you are amazing! =) I'm inspired..I made a goal after the first of the year to lose weight. I've lost ten pounds and just sort of stopped with it... I really need to get back on track. Congrats on all of your hard work and pay-off!
