Goals -

Get rid of 30 pounds
10 pounds gone - Buy a bikini - DONE!
20 pounds gone - Buy slinky cocktail dress
30 pounds gone - Buy size 4 pants

Life's journey is not to arrive safely at the grave in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, totally worn out, shouting, "Wow, What a Ride!!!"

Since I DO enjoy reading about other people's successes, I'll share my own: today I ran my second half-marathon and beat my previous time by 35 minutes. Today's time: 2:09:34.

Hi All,

I am not very active on this team, but I am a member and could not contain my joy. Today I completed my third half marathon this year and beat my PR by 5 minutes!! I am very stoked. I usually walk, but this time I did a walk-jog and felt really good. I am becoming addicted and I like it! emoticon

Congrats to those who also had a Woo Hoo moment! emoticon

Nice race, NJ5050! That's a terrific time, especially a trail race, congratulations on your AG placement and good luck to you on your upcoming HM!

Woo-Hoo! Congrats to all who have recently completed their HMs and to those about to!

I just ran my first race ever yesterday - the Octoberfest Half-Marathon in Peru, NY and it was awesome. My feet are a wreck today but given where they carried me, I figure it's OK.Thank goodness my brain didn't let me in on what was going on down there until after I had finished! LOL! I was a bit slower than my goal pace of 12 min/mile (finished with an average pace of 14 min/mile which was OK with me.

My primary goal was to complete.

And I did.

And I am very proud, if I do say so myself!

"Where do you want to get to?" the cat asked helpfully.
"I don't know," admitted Alice.
