I am so extreamly proud of my self. I just finished the Road race (5 miles) in 57 minutes. I wanted to finish in less then an hour & I did. I have been training since around August. Next year I will aim for 45 minutes. I ran most of the race I walked for about 12 min out of the 57. I kind of got terry eyed when I saw the finish line & realized I accomplished what I set out to do. I was running for my father. He was a runner & passed away 4 years ago this November. I thought of him as I was coming upon the finish line. I think he was pushing me to go.
I have been on Weight Watchers for almost 3 years. I started off great I lost 60 pounds. Now I find myself slacking & losing then gaining the same 20 pounds over & over. I have had a weight problem all my life. I am going to lose the last 50 pounds this time. I will not stop till it is dropped.
