Today Was The Big Day!

It has been a wonderful few months training for a better lifestyle. I am proud to say that today, April 11, I have successfully finished my first 5K. I feel great. I will say I cannot picture my life without running, it has helped me both mentally and physically. I think it is safe to say that running is my meditation. And even though I’m not the fastest, it’s the dedication that matters most. Running has become a way for me to let go of stress, anxiety, and most of all, any frustrations life throws at you. We began this journey at the end of January and now it is the beginning of April. A little over two months and check out my transformation:

First 30 min walk/run is complete!

I still have a long road ahead of me, but there’s no stopping now. I would like to continue to run 5k’s in order to keep pushing myself. I love where I am today, which means I know I will love where I am in just a few months. Thank you all for the support! This is really a wonderful journey and I will continue to update you guys on it!
