Graduation Day.

Today is a graduation day, of sorts.  Nine weeks ago I started the Couch to 5K running program along with two of my friends.  Today, I completed Week 9 Day 3 of the program and I've officially graduated. I completed today's 5K training run in 39 minutes, or about 13 minutes per mile. It's not going to win me an Olympic medal, but I'm proud of it.

It's hard for me to believe that I've consistently kept up my exercise at least three days a week for the last NINE weeks.  It's almost unbelievable to me at this point.

My New Year's resolution was to complete the program and run a 5K.  We're scheduled to run our first 5K on March 21st.

I'm going to go celebrate this milestone with a shower!!

You rock and I'm a loser. I downloaded that app months ago. Tried it once and gave up.
