And I'm down a pound to start off this Christmas Challenge.
I'm happy for the loss, but honestly, I would've shed 2 pounds if it hadn't been for my "on vacation" excuses. Ah well. Next week.
I lived to report my time for my first 5k last night: 00:50:49! I'm quite pleased with that. If we'd started with the runners, the time would've been more accurate. I'm really just shocked at how competitive I got and how much I ended up running! I'd see the gray haired lady in front of me, and that would push me to keep running. I'd hit a downhill stretch and it would push me to keep running. I'd try to stop for a second to catch my breath, and then Joe would push me to keep running. And to think, I had really only planned to walk the entire 5k!
Oh, after I had oh so carefully put together the 5k playlist, I read on the race guidelines that headphones weren't allowed. I reluctantly left my ipod at home...only to get there and see that everyone else brought theirs! (are there no 5k police at these things??!)
Looks like I'll have to use that playlist for a walk this weekend instead.
Have a great weekend, everybody!
