Weight loss this wk was -.2 lbs. Not a gain so I am happy, but still disappointed. I am going to up my calories to maybe 900 from 700 usual and see if that helps. Who knows.
Saturday Sept 21 was a cold n rainy day. I went to bed hoping that the rain would stop by the time the alarm went off at 5 am, but to no a vale it did not. So I got up showered and dressed, made sure the girls were up and we got ready. It was all of our 1st 5k's. It was such an exciting morning. We drove down to Willoughby Hills and parked the car. At the stage they were doing warm up zumba and we were goofin around and warming up.Then we got in line to be in the first wave of runners. I caught a fanny pack and a rubber bracelet from the announcer at the start of the race. It rained the whole time, but I didnt let it stop me from enjoying my 1st 5k. I took off with my friends by my side and slowly started to get a head of them. I did this race for me and I wasnt going to slow down for anyone. I slowed for water and towards the end I slowed to make sure I could still see the girls behind me. When I saw them I kept on running. Once I was through the last color and down the road I could see the finish line. I took off like a bat out of hell and booked it to the finish line so fast that Isaac and Dad couldnt see me coming haha.
I was so happy that Isaac and my dad, the two men in my life that mean the most to me were there at the Start of the race and at the Finish! I love them both soo much!
I am proud of myself for doing this for ME and completing it and in good time. Already have my next race picked out Sat Oct 5th RoctheCroc at Crocker Park in Westlake, to help fight childhood cancer!
Here are some great photos from the Color Run!
