Ladies and gentleman...I'm proud to present...

SWEATY! And breathing hard but feeling GOOD!
Yes! I did a 5K today. I started the C25K program and I was following a 5K route. So although the program finished at 1.19 miles, I was still on the trail!! So I briskly walked (And did a little bit extra jogging) back to the start!! WOOHOO! I went with my mom and her friend Margaret who are running the Ironhorse 5K next Sunday. And I'm planning on signing up for the ING 5K in October. I feel like at that time I will sucessfully have completed the C25K program and will be running 5Ks and improving my time! Anyone in the CT area (or even MA, RI, NY who want to com down) I'd love if you want to join me! Rock it!

So before my run I had 2 veggie sausages and I felt awesome when I was running. I felt it was the pefect fuel for me. And then afterwards I cooled down and we went over to Starbucks for a coffee. Tracking my food is going excellent, I'm making food choices...

That biggest loser contest at work won't know what hit them!

Hope everyone has a safe and happy Memorial Day! And for my friends abroad, have a lovely Sunday! <3

Final Stats on my Run (ONLY WITH THE C25K PROGRAM):

Overall Pace: 15:33
Overall Distance: 1.19 Miles
Time: 18:30
Fastest Interval: 12:05
Longest Interval: 0.10 miles

It's a start!


  1. Great job. I'm planning on restarting this so I hope that I can use your posts as some motivation and I can get myself in a better spot!

  2. WOOP! *happy dance* way to go girl! So, so, so proud of you <3
    It is awesome you found the right fuel, I have experimented but only a hard boiled egg and a slice of whole grain toast sustains me and sits well before I run in the mornings, the fact you have found what works for you so quickly is FANTASTIC!
    Can't wait to hear about more of you C25K runs, You can do this!!!!!

  3. Way to go! Keep up the good work, this will help with your BL challenge big time.

  4. Well done dear! Way to go on starting the C25K program. I'm on week 7 now and it's been good for my endurance. Keep it up :-)
