Running down the Scale


I Run.

If you would have told me this four years ago, I would I have laughed at you.

If you would have told me this about five months ago, I would have chuckled. Running? My exercise of choice? Running, really? Over biking, or walking?

Yes.

I spent a hot summer trailing behind a friend of mine, who could go faster than me without even trying. Sweating in 98 degree heat, running, huffing and puffing.

See the thing is, for the first time in my life, weight began to fall off of me. I was on my parents diet (mostly), working, and running alot. I had never seen such good results...and trust me. I have been trying to loose weight for YEARS.

So, that is my little peace about running, will you come run with me?

Goal of the week: No cigarettes after drinking on Friday

I’m going to a party this Friday and I occasionally will partake in social smoking. My goal is to not smoke since my 5k is coming up soon.
