Update on the running!

So I have been asked how my training is going. Well I'm half way through the 3rd week and it's getting tougher. I now have to run for 3 min. and then walk for 2 min. for a total of 20 min. This is hard for me to do since I've never been a runner, but I am proud to say that I did it! I didn't want to freak myself out so I didn't look at my watch for the first 3 min. run, and when I finally did I had gone over by 47 secs. I was pretty proud of myself. I do my runs in the morning before 8 am, and I get to run along the river walk. It is nice and quiet and I don't have to worry about any kids yelling names at me anymore. (They were calling me fatty and Run Forest while I was running around a track close to home. I'm already hard on myself, I don't need stupid high school kids picking on me!) I have set the date for the race that I am going to run in, and will be sending in my fee and application on Monday. I'm actually pretty excited about what I am doing. Unfortunately my eating hasn't gotten any better yet, but it will slowly! Thanks for the interest, and I'm sure Jennifer that you are doing awesome with your training too!!
