Continuing the Interruption

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.

Congrats! I too started running a few years ago and it can be so exhilarating to finish a race! You'll have a blast!
