Mumbo Jumbo


Well, the first 5k of 2011 is in the books.  It was rough!  It was icy, slick, and cold!  And well, I hadn't ran leading up to this race.  But, I finished and my time wasn't my worst ever - so that's a plus.  As you can see in the picture, I was dressed in layers.  I had my jacket wrapped around my waist starting at mile 2.  My friend took this picture at the finish line with his iPhone.  I swear I was running and I swear there were people around me.  My friend finished like 5 seconds before me and another girl was right on my tail - you can kind of see her shadow.  I came in 10th in my age group.  One of the perks of a smaller race.

So I've climbed back on the fitness train.  I ran a short 1.25 miles before cooking dinner yesterday and then biked 10 miles before bed.  Not too bad!  I'm slowly going to build my running base back up.  And slowly I will kick these extra pounds to the curb!

You DO look like you are running! I think that running is the BEST way to kick pounds. I don't know why, but that is how it usually works for me. Go you for actually running in the ice.
