My FIRST 5K-!!!

Sunday, October 06, 2013

I participated in my first 5K yesterday for a great organization called NAMI National Alliance of Mental Illness. This was a very rewarding feeling to walk for such a great cause. Millions of people in the U.S. are affected by mental illness and those who love them. If you are interested in more information log onto;

While driving down to the train station yesterday headed downtown Atlanta, I had a very sobering moment. It was so surreal for me because a year ago not even 6 months ago did I see myself being able to take part in a 5K. This was an amazing milestone for me. It gave me added self-esteem to continue to keep striving emoticon and to continue on my journey of weight loss and healthy living.

Now I can, MARK IT DONE, COMPLETED, emoticon I DID IT!!!!
