Run.... Forest..Run

Okay so I have embarked on a new endeavor in my life. RUNNING!!!! And I absolutely love it!! If someone would have told me at the beginning of the year that I could run 2 miles without stopping, I would have called you a bold face liar!!!! Well I did it yesterday!!! I have been on the elliptical since the first of the year, finally met my goal on there, 2.5 miles in 30 minutes.  So I got on the treadmill two weeks ago and I ran for 1.5 miles without stopping, walked for 4 minutes and then ran for another mile!!! I have done that probably 6-7 times. Yesterday I hit the open road!!! My new running partner and I took off through a subdivision close to my work and I did it!!! And it felt amazing!!! I am sure you will hear a lot more about my new addiction, so bare with me!!!

So get up off your shiney hiney (that is what Maddie calls her behind! ha) lace up those tennis shoes and go for a walk/run, trust me you WILL feel better!!!

One day a week I will post my times, distance of my runs each week!!

This is me after my run Saturday morning on the treadmill
in my basement!! Just a tad bit sweaty!!
