Girly-girl P.A.R.T.S 5K race.

 Number pick up was Friday so we dashed right out after school and work. I really had no idea about the size of quality of the race. I did know that my co-workers have done it for the past few years and they have some mad crazy spirit for this cause.
For me I really wanted to know what I could do. I have been working hard on the food and the Couch to 5K. I used this race as my week 5 day 1 run. The course was much flatter than the route I have been using so I knew my time would be a little better than normal and race times are usually better just because it's a race!
I gave it all I could. I ran, walked to catch my breath and ran again. I was happy to feel like I was in the middle of the pack instead of the back and overall felt good. Could have used some more sleep actually but life was a little busy.
Anyway, let's talk numbers.
Yarmouth PD race in May- 44min 5K
Girly Girl race Sept- 37min 5K
12 weeks with no sugar or flour....ok maybe a couple handfully of tortilla chips.
Down 16 lbs.
Feeling pretty good about all those numbers.
I have set a couple of goals.
1. Want to lose another 25lbs by my 8 year surgiversary in February.
2. Pells Bridge race if money allows Oct 25.

I am making these statements today because I had hope like yesterday or maybe Sunday but today I am not feeling so powerful. It's Ok. There are going to be days when you just aren't. My anxiety is up and I can only acknowledge it, try not to feed it and know tomorrow is another day.
5 hours until I can get out on my feet. I took a couple days off after this race and I am back at it today. Take me through day 2 J.Lo and we will shake this shit off.
