Goal Day

Before 254 Pounds 27 min mile!!

On May 19th, 2012 at 8 am I embarked upon my final mission before my goal day.  I ran my first 10k race. Now I have run 5k's in the past while I was on  my get fit kicks. But I never trained for  them and I was never this in shape before. I learned a lot during this race. I had an ideal time that I wanted to make an  ideal  pace  that I wanted to run. Now don't get me wrong I have  run over 6 miles before, 101 times in fact. However, I have never run in pact or with all women. There were hundreds of women around me, all shapes, sizes and ages. In fact there was a 70 year old women, one minute behind me.  I used to think there was some ideal weight or shape that I needed to be. But there is no such thing as ideal, we all have it in us to push ourselves to fitness and health. I honesty wish I would not have waited to do a 10K. I could have done this  year ago. I might not have been as fast but I could have done it. Don't wait until the right time to try something do it now.  I am so excited to embark on the next phase of my journey. Don't worry I am not going anywhere, I will be still blogging my journey.  I am however in the process of planning an out of state move for my new job. So bare with me as I transition to my new home and I will be blogging from my phone until we get settled. Start today and you wont be sorry 22 months later and look at me!!
