Can't believe I did it!
This past Saturday I ran my first 6k! It was a 6k instead of a 5 because the route they had us take through the gardens at Thanksgiving Point happened to be 6k's. I still can't believe that I could actually RUN (ok jog slowly) for an entire 3.76 miles. Sometimes I feel like I'm living in a dream when I think about how my life has been for so many years now. It is so fun to be coming out of my shell a little and trying new things. The reason I wanted to try running a race was to just be able to have a goal to shoot for and to say I did it. I beat the goal that I had set for myself for the race by a few minutes and I came in right in the middle of the pack. I was so nervous about being last that I felt really good about the middle. There were 1800 women that raced that day and the atmosphere and just being a part of it were lots of fun. I couldn't hold back the tears of amazement just to realize how far I've come and how much Ideal Protein has blessed my life! Thanks Molly for running it with me. Next on the agenda is the half marathon in Ogden on May 21st. I signed Scott up with me for that one, so we have a lot of training to do, but we will be there! Running should just get a lot easier with my goal of being down another 50 pounds by race day. Can't wait!!
