2011 is coming to a close and I feel like it has been a very successful year!

Weight loss was one of my goals, but being healthier was even bigger.

In June I joined a learn-to-run program called No Boundaries through our local Fleet Feet Store! What an AMAZING experience. I was able to train to improve my 5k time, and what I really did through this program was make running a real and permanent part of my life. I now run 4+ times per week.

In September when school started up again and the running program came to an end, I signed up for the 10k program, and wow! Weight started coming off! I am down 21lbs (officially since I went to the doctor's office just this past week), and I am running 5+ miles IN ONE WORKOUT.

Who would have thought?

As winter comes up on us, I am looking to participate in the store's winter running program because I do not want to go back on this! It's the first time in my life that I have actually lost weight.

I'm thinking I will start working on distance training come spring! And maybe another couple of pant sizes too!

My Goals:
My main goal is to get Healthy. I'm going to attempt to run a 5K in September 2009, and maybe I'll lose some weight along the way. Also, I'm trying to make better food choices and not be sucked into the stress/boredom eating that I am so usually accustomed too.

What you have accomplished is just amazing, since most all of the people who started when we did have long since quit.

This third year will be the best! emoticon
