I did it!!



Last 5k I did in 45.2 minutes (July 4, 2012)

Today 46.52 minutes ~ Not bad for not a lot of  practice!!


I tried to smile in my picture, but my lip was quivering too much!

Notice my Dream wall hanging....I guess I'm a little closer to achieving my dream of running a 1/2 Marathon. Notice the "E"....it's broken, look at the bottom of the letter. (that little white spot is where part of the letter broke off). I have wanted to replace that letter, but today, I realize how important that broken "E" is.

You see my body is broken. It's not perfect. I'm still babying my sore back and I have a lot of other little ailments and old injuries to deal with. So even though there is brokenness, I still have hope to achieve my dreams! Just have to push through all the obstacles and keep focused on the goal. I can do this!!!!

I FEEL GREAT!!!!!!!!!!!

How about you....are you reaching for your dreams?

Keep focused!!!!!!!!!

  5. Hi Joy, thank you for your encouragement & suggestions yesterday. The transition time is wonderful but can be confusing. I do look forward to dating DH much more again - and we've had a taste of that over the past few years. It's just finding my place, I guess! I do look forward to finding the things that I've loved to do but haven't had the time for - and especially getting myself more active again! I'm excited about that after reading your comments!

  8. It is great when you achieve your goals and move forward! In order to keep moving and never stop I am taking Military Grade Supplements. What I really like about them is that they are natural and provide sustainable results. Pre-workout formulas effectively enhance and maintain my endurance and strength. My shape is steadily improving and I feel energized like never before.
