The race. Alright, as much as I run I don't "road run" it's very different from my treadmill at my gym watching a movie in a pitch black theater. So, I was slightly nervous but 3 miles no biggie.
I didn't do as bad as I thought, I came in first in my age division in the 20 to 29 yr. olds, not bad. John caught up to me at the end and I sprinted him out (I know he let me beat him) and Kay well she was 20 seconds behind me....She is 62 and was running on an injured leg, she is an animal!
I love being fit. I had my 3 babies so fast that I wasn't even able to work off the baby weight in between each one. My fitness goals have been long and hard. My weight didn't want to come off until I started to completely change my diet. I didn't realize how much food was a focus in my life. "What can I eat", "I'm bored, I'm going to eat", "Treats" on and on. We socialize with food. My nights consisted of my putting the kids to bed and then curling up on the couch with my pre-recorded shows and something delicious and sinful in my bowl. I have had to completely shift my mind set. As hard as it's been (which it has been very very hard) it's been worth the results.
