So, I am totally excited!!

A couple of weeks ago I went jogging to my voting spot and I was so out of breath when I got there I had to sit on a bench and rest before I went in. I blogged about it briefly here. My polling spot is at a school around the corner from my house.

So where is this story going you ask?

Well, I put dinner in the oven (porkchops) and while my hubby sat with the sleeping kiddos, I went out for a jog outside. I decided to head towards the school to see if I could see a difference. About halfway there I notices that I was out of breath yet...then I decided that if I made it to the school and I wasn't going to pass out, then I would keep going....and so I passed the school...rounded the corner...and decided I was going to stop at this certain point. I didn't give up....I just kept going....and when I got there I checked my stopwatch and I had ran....wait for it....wait for it....8 minutes and 11 seconds!!! Can you believe it??

So what's the big deal?? The big deal is that I was freaking out after having to run for 5 minutes straight on the treadmill, but while outside I busted that and did 8!!



  1. congratulations!! thats awesome :)

  2. I'm so glad to hear that! Sometimes it's the victories we set out for ourselves that could pull us out of any funk. I'm rooting for you and I know you will be a success :-)

  3. way to go! i feel like i am getting better at jogging/running as well. i have a goal to run an actual 5k this summer! i am happy for you!

  4. Haha, thanks for following me and all I can say is classy ladies think alike (and have the same great taste...) with the background.

    I also really like your "cheer" and "confession" sections in each of your posts, I may have to start doing that!

    Best of luck to you!


Show me some love!! Or kick my butt!!
