Finish Strong Sunday-Year Anniversary!

Weight update first:  up .8lbs. this week.  I was disappointed, but not surprised due to the number of parties/luncheons I had this week.  Although I did not go overboard at any of them, I definitely ate more than I usually do and that showed on the scale.  On a positive note, I’ve lost 3 inches on my waist, 2.5 on my hips, and 3 on my bust!

On another note, the new season of MIT (Marathoner In Training) started this past Saturday. As I was driving there, I couldn’t help but think back to last year when I had first joined.  I was a nervous wreck thinking, “what have I gotten myself into?”  I didn’t know anyone.  I was intimidated and felt very much out of my element.

Who would have known the journey  that decision took me on!  I completed not one or two, but THREE half-marathons!  I’ve met some wonderful people that I am honored to call friends.  I have lost 35 lbs and am on my way to becoming healthy and fit.  I am a stronger, more confident woman, wife and mother.

Damn Fool 5 Miler-Love these Ladies!!

This year my goal is to become faster.  I made the hard decision to move from the 13 min/mile pace group to the 12 min/mile group.  It was a tough decision, but one I knew I needed to make.  Since the Columbus Half, I have been running at that pace and know that I can sustain it at least at lower mileage.  I’ll see how it goes and if I have to drop back, I will.

I’m excited to see what this year brings!  How about you?  Any goals set for your running/exercising/life?

Finish Strong!  Amy :)
