This morning I ran my second 10K.
I’ve really struggled with losing the baby weight this time around. I was 5 pounds heavier when I had my little girl and it’s those 5 pounds that I can’t seem to lose.
So I did Insanity and got down to my normal weight, but then the stress of life and the move came and I turned to food and haven’t had the time to run or exercise, so of course I put back on the weight.
2 1/2 weeks ago I was sitting in bed talking with my husband and complaining about gaining weight, how I look and things like that (it’s a pretty common conversation in our house). I have a hard time running or exercising without a purpose or a goal. So I researched up coming races and there happened to be a 10K here, so I signed and then I started training.
The race went well today. I really didn’t go fast, but a nice pace. I felt good. It was so nice to run again. I forgot how much I like it. I’m definitely a runner.
I had a couple of goals in mind when I got there. Run it in about 55 minutes and get in the top 10 for girls. Those were some really big goals since I had only been running for 2 1/2 weeks. Well I met them. I ran it in 55:01 minutes, took 21st overall, 8th in girls and 1st in my age division, so I was pretty excited about that 🙂
