I am a runner… according to alitherunner our twitter friend and a great blogger. You should be following her on Twitter and check out her blog (http://notasfatrunner.blogspot.com/)! She is one of the prime motivators in getting butt going on the C25K (couch to 5K), well her and foodiemcbody, okay and lots of others that have been constantly checking on me ever since I was roped into the C25K by Shannon. Alitherunner told me anyone who begins running is considered a runner, anyone at any level. Wow… to think of myself as a runner is something else, and by something else I mean damn inspiring!
I decided I would do this on Thursday and accidentally fell asleep trying to get my son to sleep so it didn’t happen that night; then on Friday, same thing. So I learned I must do it earlier in the day and today, Saturday I got it done! It was only the first workout, but I am so excited and I feel amazing. Few things feel as good as pushing your body and achieving fitness goals. (For the record it probably feels better than the stupid brownies I have always loved taste) To think of running in an actual real life race is kind of surreal at this time… I guess it is something I have always admired people for, but not something I ever thought I would achieve, that is until foodiemcbody introduced us to the C25K. It was amazing and inspiring to me to learn that so many people, who were not in phenomenal shape started the C25K program and now are real runners, not only running 5K races, but half marathons and marathons… AMAZING!
Have I ever mentioned I have the most amazing parents in the world?! I do! They are so supportive in this journey and encouraging. I am so thankful for them and I know I would be a wreck without them… So to them I say thank you and I love you! They are also the best Grammy and Papa any kids could ask for.
I am so excited to continue this journey with all the great people who have always supported me and all the inspiring new friends I am making along the way!
