Don't you just hate when this happens.....


...just another reason for me to get a hair cut!!

On to other business:

I WANT TO BE A RUNNER!!

I want to get back in shape. I feel like I've just let things go and its all moving downhill. Yuck!! So I've been doing a little research oh how I can get myself into shape and how to become an amateur race runner! I've looked at a few 5K's around my area and I think I've narrowed it down.

Jim Payne Blue Ribbon 5k Run for Kids House

I'm so excited. I haven't signed up yet, because I want to make sure I can get a few weeks of running under my belt. I get back into Florida on the 25th and I will start then. (I'd start now, but I didn't bring anything in the form of a running shoe with me.) I will have 7 and a half weeks to prepare. I'm not completely out of shape, but I have never been able to run long distances. So this is the plan....I'm trying to find a running program that works for me. I'm going to start my running and I want you to keep me accountable. I want to finish this and start a new chapter! I've prayed about it and God's all for it! :)

My goals for running are:
-Finish my first 5K
-Lose 15 lbs
-Feel better in my own skin
-Find a new hobby :)

I want to add a weight and mileage tracker on my page....does anyone know where I can find that?

Have a great day!
