Yes, that's right.  I'm running my first 5K.  I've been running for about 5 months now.  Mostly on the treadmill.  However, on Saturday, I've registered to run in a 5K.  I'm nervous.  What I'm nervous about is what if I can't keep up.  But, I plan to put in my headphones, turn on my music, and keep on keeping on.  Next race.....the color run.  I can't wait for this one.  This  race is going to be fun.  After every kilometer you run, you get sprayed with color paint.  Everyone wears white so by the end of the race, you've got tie-dyed clothes!

Continued Weight Loss Success

As of today, I've lost 65.6 pounds.  I am so close to my goal weight.  I've also picked up more running events.  I will be doing a triathlon in September.  This one is being sponsored by Title Nine and is women only.  It is really a sprint triathlon....1/4 mile swim, 10 mile bike ride, 5K run.  I decided to invest in my legs and feet and went to a store that specializes in running.  I was informed that good running shoes keep you from getting unnecessary injuries.

Before going to the running store, I had a retail therapy session.  That's right, I went to The Loft and invested in some clothing.  Right now, most of my clothing is a bit too big.  So, I got needed summer tops and a skirt.  I'm pleased to say that at first I got a size 8 to try on.  That proved too big and ended up buying the size 6 skirt.  Now before you start congratulating me, I've heard that the clothes at The Loft run large.  So, who knows what size I really am.
