Okay, the weight thing is a problem. I'm up and have undone some of the good from last year. That's bad. But what's good is that I managed to keep running throughout the 7th snowiest winter in this area. What's good is that I ran a second 5K, and I didn't think I would because my back has been bad. (Tweaked it slipping on ice during a run. Twice.) So I let myself walk a part of every mile. I still finished faster than the first 5K! 11:33 splits! Not fast by anyone's definition, but faster. Only 53 people were slower. I had to ask for splits at miles 2 and 3... I guess they figured the back of the pack didn't really care. I cared. And I'm pumped. I am going to run a 5 miler in a month. I will probably run/walk it (a la John Bingham) but I'm going to put myself out there.
And soccer season starts next month. I'm excited because I am probably in less danger of collapsing from a heart attack during the game than I have been in years. I've been tracking today, and I will try to track every day. Keep your fingers crossed!
