I have no "goal weight". MY goal is to be as healthy, strong and active as I can be. This isn't about my relationship with the scale but my relationship with the world.

Congrats to you! I'm sure this is a place where nobody will ever tire of hearing about our successes! I just ran my first race EVER yesterday - a Half-Marathon - and also am exhilarated and proud so perhaps I'll be around tooting my horn a bit too. My pace was a bit slower than I had hoped but I'm happy that I finished (that really was my primary goal!) and I look forward to running other races (shorter ones!) once my feet and knee recover!

Again - congrats on your victory and a great result! YOU ROCK! emoticon

Favorite quote:

"Which road should I take?" she asked the cat.
"Where do you want to get to?" the cat asked helpfully.
"I don't know," admitted Alice.
"Then," advised the cat, "any road will take you there."

I ran my first HM last Sunday! It was cool, overcast, and I had a GREAT time!

I finished in 2:33. I didn't really have a time goal, just wanted to finish. But I am happy with the time, right in the middle of the pack. If I had put myself in the Philly category, I could have been first place!

Now I want to focus on getting faster. I think I'll try to get my 5k time below 30 min. My current PR is 32:11


Just needed to share. I think my family is getting tired of hearing me talk about it. Lol
