A long overdue blog entry


Monday, May 27, 2013

Good golly, so much to say...where to begin?

I'll start at the most recent - I ran in a 5K race on Saturday! It was a really big deal and I did great and had a lot of fun! My two oldest children entered in the kids fun run and my eldest won! My other son came in 4th, which is really great too.

I entered as a recreational runner, which means that my time would not be recorded but I can see my time as I cross the finish line. I didn't want my first ever 5k RUN to be recorded - with my name, age, and time - on the internet for posterity. But had I entered as a competitor, I would have come in 2nd in my age group. So I did well but there is still a lot of room for improvement.

I've been exercising 5x/week, 30 minutes each time. Mainly running. I've been really enjoying it and having a great time. I've also been eating really well. I haven't lost much weight - about 6 lbs total since the beginning of the year. However, I'm so much healthier. I'm on the right track.

The other day, I went to the doctor for my chronic fatigue. She ordered a lot of blood tests. My cholesterol is great - for the first time in years! I'm definitely on the right track. I know that if I keep going, I'll eventually, slowly, lose this weight.

But after Saturday's run, my boys were so excited, they want to start running with me! So, yeah, I'll have some great running partners really soon!

OK, gotta go get ready for tomorrow.
