Finish Line.

We did it. Mainly a Midwife and I accomplished a major life goal. We completed our first 5K this morning. If my body didn't feel so tired, I wouldn't believe it myself.

Please pardon my t-shirt. It is --and I am not kidding-- 22 years old. It's my favorite t-shirt and is so comfy. This morning there was a chill in the air and I took the opportunity to wear old trusty one more time. After catching a glimpse of myself in my well-loved tee, I've decided he might be heading towards retirement.

I have decided that come Monday, I'm starting a new program. It's called "5K to Couch." I'm hanging up the running shoes for a while.  It seems ---and I'm no expert here-- that my excessive running and additional exercise might be hindering me from losing the stress out weight I gained last year.  So I'm planning on dialing down the exercise until such time as my weight starts to creep back into my comfort zone--or at least until I'm out of fat jeans and into 'regular' jeans again.

Meet me on the couch.
