This week, shortly after completing my first 5K (yay!), it's back to RUN training again. I am up to the "1 Mile" Runs in my Couch To 5K Program. My energy is lower than normal, no doubt due to the 5K holiday weekend, BUT my body is still going strong.
This is a huge blessing. I look up to God and give thanks. I have always had a strong, healthy body, but now, it's getting stronger. And so in looking at the overall picture, I recognize that I have my health. I may not have a million other things, but I HAVE MY HEALTH!
A beautiful, beautiful blessing... (sigh, smile)
Also another blessing, I have my SparkPeople friends and family. This goes out to everyone who spurred me on, encouraged me, signed my page, chatted me up on my feed and commented on my blogs for support and advice for my first 5K this past weekend... and especially to Sharon (MBSHAZZER) who actually showed up to cheer me... THANK YOU!
Other special thanks, for a million different reasons, include - ABSOLUTZER0, DENI_ZEN, TRIGRAMPS, JAZZYSPICE, APATRICIAP521, THEBR0KENWRITER, SCHENPOSSIBLE, TGALDA, CREATINGAMANDA, BABY_GIRL69, MSILVER94, CARLA0716, NANHBH, MEREDIE02, FITJEDI, GETFIT2LIVE, KIMMAS82, ROBYN168, FANORONHA_14, NANCYANNE55, PMFISH, RAWKNRUN, DARKCHILD, GONABFIT, FELLE442, THEASHINATOR, SAVEDBYGRACE95, SUNSHINE667, DEBBIE_C, MOCACHOC, LASHAY74 - you guys are awesome! (check out their pages!!!)
Thank you, thank you! God is always by my side in spirit, only just a prayer away, but it's also nice to not feel by myself in the physical world. And everyone who took time for messages, etc (of which are too numerous to count), you are wonderful!
I hope to be as good a friend to you as you all have been to me.
And so my little "present" of thanks is to remind everyone that Kashi is giving out free snacks!!!
Go to the site, sign up and they'll send you a nice sample in the mail. I've done this for two other free Kashi samples and have never been disappointed (or inundated with mailers...lol). So try it out!
I signed up for the free Ripe Strawberry Cereal Bar snack. Maybe I'll even blog about it. Hmmm... And I think the other snack offers are Chewy Granola Bar Trail Mix...
...and Original 7 Grain Crackers.
So don't forget! Get a free snack for your healthy, stealthly self! Besides, wouldn't it be nice to have something in your mail other than bills and fliers and catalogs?
Oh! And P.S. I forgot to mention that before I thought my 5K finish time was 42:35, but I got the official transcript yesterday and it was actually 42:25. Woot, woot!
Cheers for the blessings in life... the health, the wealth, the friends and fam.. and the snacks!
...for reading. Leave me a note... I love that!
