Here I go Again

Thursday, November 29, 2012

You know that song was my motivation when I started this. Personally I thought I needed an new theme song. This sone represented my battle with weight loss. You know the lose it, gain it, start another fad diet etc. Well I am happy to report thats not the case anymore.

This Saturday I will be running in my 7th 5K. The Jingle Bell Run is on the agenda. Its a race for Arthritis. Seems good cause since my body is loaded with it. Weather loos good and should be nice and flat with minimum people.

Back in Sept I started with the Critter Crawl. Appropriately named as I "ran" my first race in 35:14. Next I did the Angel for Autism, followed by the Apple Run. By that run I managed to shave 3 minutes off my time. Next came the Pumpkin Dash which was a hilly race that I ran in 30:15. Feast on Fitness was a flat race that gave me my best time at 29:14. Thanksgiving Day was the Turkey Run. That was the largest and hardest race I had ever done. Almost 900 people and lots and lots of hills. That one I did in 30 flat.

So back when I started running never had any idea I would "like" it so much. Personally wish I had more time to focus on it. My goal was to run 3 races this fall. Then I challenged myself to two more. Flew by that one obviously. On my counter are sheets for a couple more in the area. I am not gonna pre register for those just yet. If weather is good though I will be there.

The feeling that I get after a race is so exhilarating. I will never be the fastest runner by any means. Just to finish 3 miles without stopping is a major feat for me. So on Saturday it looks like I will be saying Here I go Again with a big smile on my face. Gotta love it.
