Why yesterday was awesome.

Yesterday was awesome because Regan and I ran 3.1 miles in 37 minutes.

Why does that make us awesome, you ask?

Because it was a PR by 3 minutes. That's right, 3 minutes.

We've been so focused on adding miles that we haven't been too worried about our pace. Well, lo and behold, as soon as we backed down for a quick 3 miler, it was just easier to go significantly faster!

All of a sudden, a 1o minute mile isn't too crazy. An under 30 5k isn't crazy!!

Don't get me wrong, I'll always be a penguin, but hooray for us!

Other updates:
1. I've lost 4.6 pounds on the WW. Even over the holidays! A few friends have joined up with us. It's good times.
2. On John Bingham's challenge (move 30 minutes every day) I'm doing well. Thanks to the wii fit I can even get in a few minutes when I really, really don't want to. Ultra-Supportive Husband is, as always, ultra-supportive. He got me moving tonight when I really, really didn't want to.
3. I'm joining the Fleet Feet Racing Team tomorrow. Because I can.
4. We went to look at a dog to adopt. He was SOOO sweet. But too big. And hyper. And he licked my face and I immediately broke out into hives. Guess we'll have to get another kitten. DARN.


PS I LOVE the google TV Kevin Bacon commercial. It is on now. It makes me giggle hard. Yes, it is overplayed. I'm OK with that.


  1. Congrats on your accomplishments...losing weight during the holidays is impressive as is your new PR! Way to go.

  2. YAY! So excited that we had a PR on Monday. Even more excited that you are joining the racing team!
