Happy 1 year MFP Anniversary to me!!!

Just realized that March 23rd will be my 1 year anniversary of MFP logging! Just so happens that I am also running the Color For Kids 5K in Oxford! Well, actually, I will probably walk most of it as I have got my 7 year old, 4 year old AND MY HUSBAND signed up too!! Big NSV right there! Just fine with that though! One year ago, none of us would have dreamed of running around the yard let alone a 5K!! So thankful to God for giving me the strength and courage to change my circumstances! This Saturday will be my 10th race!! Happy Anniversary, indeed!

Frustrated, not defeated. 10k, can I do it?

So, I have had a less than stellar winter and had a big gain that I am working on, or should I say off! I gained 8 pounds in 9 days of vacation alone! Another 10 since Halloween. 

Due to injury, arthrits, PF, laziness and poor attitude, I am nowhere near my 10K training goals. The most I have been able to do is 4.9 miles. Today, I only got to 6k. And it took me longer than it has EVER taken me!! What is up? Am I tired? Worn down? Too out of shape? I have a runny nose but I am not sick!

Feeling frustrated. Not defeated.

Saturday the 9th is my first 10K. There is no turning back from this. Registered. Paid. Have a group that is going. Got a babysitter lined up to take my dgtr to her last cheer game. At this point, my hope is to finish it. Seriously. I just want to finish. I can work on time all spring. I just want to finish this race. I am so slow normally but these days, I am beyond slow! Let me repeat, I just want to finish!
