Today along with a few of my friends from the support group completed my first 5k of 2009. Our goal was to finish and finish we did - as we got closer to the finish line we started talking about attending other races and I believe we should. I was dog tired as I had worked the midnight shift on Saturday night and only had 2 hours of sleep prior to the race - but it felt great.
There is something wonderful about how you feel when you complete a goal that you set for yourself. I actually have waited for something to start hurting like my knees, or feet but I got nothing! So that tells me I need to get out there and do it again. Walking along and talking made the time go by fast and I got to know one of the girls from our group, Pam. It was nice to be able to share thoughts about our weight loss journey in such a positive way.
