I have to pause and take a moment to brag.
It isn't often that I have a pat on the back moment that I ask for public recognition on, but darn it, today is the day.
I am on the eve of my first ever 5K.
In 2009, I decided to stop being unhappy with my physical self and shed some pounds. I found a method that worked for me and lost 55 pounds in 2010. I still have a few more to go, but I feel fantastic.
So incredibly fantastic, in fact, that I decided that the goal for 2011 was to run three 5ks. The first is this Saturday as part of the Oshkosh Half-Marathon.
I'm excited. I'm nervous. I'm thinking about how great it will feel to finish.
Thanks for letting me boast.
