Is the day I joined SparkPeople.
Is the day I started Couch to 5K
Is the day I changed my life.
It is so hard to believe that just 1 year ago I could not even run 60 seconds without feeling like I was going to explode.
I remember being completely freaked about about having to run for 20 minutes straight.
I remember the feeling that I had when I graduated the couch to 5K program.
I remember my first race and the "hill" that I had no idea I would run
I remember my second race when my 2 year old son had a meltdown because he wanted to run with me( incredible experience)
I remember my wife saying that she wanted to run a marathon but not alone. I still can not believe i said sure to that one!
so here we are 1 year later and I now:
Run 30+ miles a week
Lost 53 pounds and have maintained it so far during training
am less than 2 weeks away from the marathon
ready to start my next journey.
Thanks for reading and I look forward to another great year.
