From the beginning…..

On July 28, 2013 I started a Couch25k program.  I have started it in the past and never made it past the first couple of weeks.  This time I seem to have the MOTIVATION to keep with it!  I am now in week 5!!

Here is a snipit from the beginning to now.



I am bad at this!

Wow! I am bad at the blogging thing!  Hopefully I can be better. I want to journal my fitness journey.  Starting today I will blog about my runs and rides .. and maybe just some random thoughts!

Slacker !

I had full intentions of posting everyday…. but Life got in the way … funny how that happens.  I am sitting in the hospital waiting room waiting for my husband to get out of surgery… so I actually have some quiet time 🙂

I am hoping to get back on a routine of posting….. stay tuned.
