I just did a recap of my journey and realized that 9/2/08 marks the one year anniversary for me being a lifetime member with weight watchers. I am so happy to see that I have been pretty steady and focus to keep at goal.
Finding weight watchers also help me understand how important exercise was and with finding exercise. I wanted to do something that I always thought that was impossible and for me that was running.
Not only do I run now. I run in different event races. November 25, 2007 marks my one year anniversary for racing in an event. I have move on from 5k to half marathons and maybe a full marathon one day.
I have discovered that I am an athlete and that it is never late to become an athlete.
I did the girl friend run in Vancover WA today. I met over 22 cyber buddies at the event. Always so good to meet cyber friends in person. We have matching shirts so that we could identify each other it was great. The day was a little colder than I like it. It was in the lower 40's no sun and a little cloudy at the start. Not my ideal dream start for me. I was hoping fo no rain and I did get that so I wont complain to much.
I was the first one to come out of the group. I completed my in 2:01:20. I shaved about 10 minutes off my first half. I'm a little disappointed because I could of made my goal if my nike + wouldn't have just stop working. I took a walk trying to fix it. It happened at mile 12 urrgggggggggggggggg. Thats ok I will set another goal and set it for my next race. I keep kicking myself but I think it is time for me to finally get me a garmin.
The event was only open to 1000 women and it was sold out. It was really nice we received soup and all different kinds of fruits a personal stretch and a massage at the finished line. All ladies on the board this is one that you may want to try to get to next year. The view was beautiful only complaint was that it was all pavements
