haven't updated in a while about my running.
it's going very well. saturday marked 12 weeks of consistent exercise. i've lost 11 pounds since i started this journey (35 pounds since i had Addison). i need to take my inches again. i'm sure i would be encouraged. my mommom was noticed the difference and that was exciting. i saw her last when Addison was 1 month old. she took me to get a couple of things and i was able to buy my pants another size smaller. there is always a thrill in that! :)
still loving running. i'm up to 3 miles. ran 3 this morning! :)
got myself some "new" running clothes. got ear muffs and gloves to keep me warm in this cold weather. makes me feel a little more like a runner. :) now i need to get new shoes. mine are not exactly what i need and as i'm running longer i'm realizing that more and more. have found one i'm interested in. hope to get to a store this week and narrow down my search AND make a decision.
going to run in a 5K on Nov. 8th with my friend Jen. she's been so sweet to encourage me and invite me to run in her neighborhood race. i can't believe that i'm going to do that and that it's actually achievable for me. it never has been before in my life.
it's weird to think i can run for a whole 35 minutes. it's weird to think when i've been going out to run that i'm running 3 miles in distance. i get so excited about it!
sometimes i think anthony and my family are in shock. this has NEVER been me. they're proud of me though and it's amazing what that encouragement can do for you. katy's a HUGE supporter and many other friends have been so kind to show interest in my running. i want you to know how much it means to me. i really appreciate all of you!
