5 Weeks to Run

Here in Atlanta we have a race called the Peachtree Road Race. It’s a 10k (6mi) race thru the city at the peak of summer. My dad used to run it when I was younger. I tried running it last year but when I got to 4 miles in my training, I developed a stress fracture in my foot and I had to sell my ticket. Well I’ve got my ticket again for this year and I’ve managed to increase my mileage to 5 miles so I’m starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel (so to speak). I’m putting out a wish to the blog void that all goes well and I’ll be able to run it this year with my hubbs, family and friends.

Wish me luck! Going to go run 🙂

Losing Pounds :)

I know that this isn’t a fitness blog but I had to write that I weighed myself this morning and was the lowest I’ve been in a while. I’ve been using My Food Diary.com all week and I think it’s starting to pay off. Not to mention I’ve been exercising like mad (and enjoying it). Anyway… if you’re wondering what is going on between posts I’m probably at the gym doing something to help get the weight off.

I saw quite a few people with running/fitness goals this year. How’s it going for all of you?
