Sometimes you just gotta KICK ASS!

Well, I know it has been FAR too long since I have blogged. Honestly, life has gotten the best of me! Life is great and all is good but man, have I been a busy girl!

Don't worry...I haven't quit or given up! It has been a struggle and I am just so dang close to 50 but I am having a hard time hitting it!

I have news to share...I DID IT! I DID IT! I DID IT! Today, I kicked some ass! Today, I did my FIRST ever 5k! I participated in the WW Walk it Challenge! But, I didn't walk it....I RAN IT! Mom and I had planned on walking together. We were at the front when the guy said "GO".  Well, we started to get a little trampled so we decided to jog for a bit to get out of the way. But, once we got started, we didn't stop! I felt SO GOOD! I kicked and screamed a little bit through it all but I wanted it. Bad. Plus, Emily was ahead of us running her heart out. She motivated me. Luckily, I had my tunes with me and it got me pumped up.

3.2 miles later...it was over! I DID IT! I did it in 38 minutes! YES! What an accomplishment! Plus, Emily finished ahead of me and Mom came in after me...what a team! We were all cheering each other on! Since Emily kicked ass and finished in 31 minutes, she was there at the finish line waiting my arrival! I could hear her screaming and cheering...YES!

Next weekend, I will be doing my big 4 mile run in Iowa. I just cant believe that I can do it! I CAN do it! YES!

Here are a few highlights from today's event...


Pre-Race with Mom and Emily. SO nervous!

It's OK to show off sometimes! Reppin' the weight loss digits!

WE CROSSED THE FINISH LINE! WE DID IT!

Post-Race. Boy, are we GLOWING! Feelin' good!

I earned that shirt and will wear it PROUDLY!


I just need to say THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU to my Mom for being there by my side! Thank you for always supporting me and encouraging me. I LOVE YOU SO MUCH! You kicked ass today too! And, THANK YOU Emily for cheering me on and encouraging me. I am SO proud of YOU!

What a day! I think I will sleep like a baby tonight :)
