Mango Days 5k, 2011

Mango Days 5k . 2011

Through sheer determination to lose my 65 pound baby weight gain, I made the decision to start running. I had never run before, and I had always struggled with endurance, but I made it happen. I signed up for a 5k and did the Couch to 5k program. Attaining this goal was one of the high points of my life, and once you meet such a big goal, you just want to keep doing it!

I’ve learned that the best motivation is to have no excuses– which is why I’ve made attainable goals. First, to run 365 miles this year. My motivator to run those 365 miles is to run a few 5ks throughout the year– this will keep me running in between, for training purposes, and to have some fun experiences throughout the year, because running a 5k is a LOT of fun!
Second, my goal is to eat healthier. I’ve been learning a lot about how my body digests food, my tastes have been growing as I’ve tried different things, and above all, I’ve noticed how much more energy I have when I eat healthier, how much better I feel about myself, and really, I want to teach my son healthy habits from a young age.

So this blog will be my space for keeping accountable to my goals and updating on my progress, as well as posting our successes and failures with eating healthy (maybe share some recipes we love!) and to share whatever else is relevant to this place in my life. I am a writer, so it just makes sense to write about all of this. It’s almost a necessity to have a blog to accompany my goals.

I hope you’ll stay tuned.
