I'm alive, and still kickin'. I just haven't quite gotten used to the whole 2 journals thing. :)

So. Last Monday and Wednesday C and I went to the track and ran 3/4 mile (3 laps) in a row each day, and were completely exhausted by the end of it. And then on Saturday we ran the Lake Run 5k. I ran over a mile without stopping. We walked a bit of the way, maybe a third? and sprinted for the last quarter to half a mile. When we stopped, my stomach (right underneath my ribs) was in such a tight knot, and I felt like I was going to collapse when we walked down the stairs to get to our friend's apartment to shower. But I felt SO good after that. I've decided I like races. It's a change of pace and it gives you a lot of motivation to keep going. I think we averaged at 11 minute miles, which isn't the greatest, but it's good for a first-timer. We finished at about 34 minutes. I can't remember what we placed, but it was just under the halfway mark if I can remember correctly. I don't care how well we did in the scheme of things, I was very proud of myself for succeeding past my personal goals.

I'm going to buy myself a bikini when I can run the 12k. :)

I just realized I need to measure myself. It's been over a month. I'm not sure anything has changed, but I might as well do it if I remember to on Thursday.
