RUN HAPPY!!!

I guess it is time for me to update my page. Especially since it isn't 2012 anymore. It's another year and I am still here...but that is a great thing! It means that I am still moving forward and refusing to turn back. I have come so far in the past few of years, while I haven't made goal weight I am so happy with the results so far. And I have did a little back sliding and had some weight gain but I know that if I keep pushing forward I will get where I want to be.

It hasn't been easy I have had set backs and am still struggling with food, I guess food will always be my frenemy. I realize I have an unhealthy relationship with food but I am learning to work around that. I am not willing to give up the foods that I love so I have to learn to eat in moderation but nothing is off limits. If I can watch what I eat 80% of the time I look at it as a positive lifestyle change. I want this to be permanent this time I know that diets don't work for me and I just have to learn to control my eating the best I can with changes that I can live with for the rest of my life.

I have only ran two races since 2012, life got in the way :( But I am going to try and run one race a month this year. With my first one today.

I love the Raleigh Race 13.1 Race. Signed up for HM 6/6. It was $59 minus discount code of $15. I added the links to the Raleigh team. This one is at North Hills Shopping Center, 5 minutes from where I live. I really love this one and they have 5 K, 10 K and the HM. Goes on the Greenways and up around Shelley Lake..

Yes, the St. Patty's Day is in Raleigh. The 8K is at 3 PM. I can post or share the link for that. My College friend has MS and I believe it is for that charity..

You have been doing great on your running.. Woo Hoo!!

Thanks for commenting on my blog!
I am really trying to get use to the temps here.
I think with the temps being so warm and then so cold
can make anyone sick. It certainly is hard to get use to.

My mother calls it pneumonia weather??

Stay healthy, I always love reading about your running adventures!
