Check and Mate!!

Are you ready for this action!!??

I just conqured the 1 mile of non-stop running. Can you believe it!!?? I did it in 11 minutes flat. On Saturday my first mile was 13 minutes. I shaved 2 minutes off!!

How did I do it you ask? How did I break through my 0.8 wall that has been haunting me for the last month??


I wanted to be able to post on here that I did it. I wanted to be able to post something positive on here since my last few posts this month have been pretty crappy. I got to that 0.8 spot and felt my body to start shutting down, but I just kissed it goodbye and kept on trucking down the sidewalk. I turned the corner and saw the end in site and starting chanting, "You can do it! You are not alone!" like 100 times outloud. I know people driving by thought I was crazy, but I didn't care.

I also kept repeating, "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me!!"

I am so proud=) Thanks guys for believing in me. You have helped me more than you know!!

Confession: I had some chocolate today.

Cheer: I didn't eat sunflower seeds last night like I had said I would. I ran a freakin mile!!! LOL And I have lost one pound so far. Official weigh in isnt until Monday morning. Here is to a few more by Monday!!


  1. WOO HOO! What a great accomplishment. I am glad to know I am not the only person who talks to herself while she is running. I say very similar things! IT WORKS PEOPLE! I am so happy for you! Keep it up!


  2. Sweet, way to go.
    Okay to you asked for some running advice from me. Here is what works for me.
    It doesn't matter how fast you run as long as you are running. The more you do it, the quicker you will become. Change up your route so you don't get bored. Find someone who will do it with you and push you a little out of your comfort zone. And have fun.

  3. I am always thinking about my readers when I am working out. Keep up your great work! 11 minute mile is quite the accomplishment!


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