Well today I did something I knew I would eventually have to do seeing as I want to run a 5K, I ran outside. Yes, outside... in public, for others eyes to see. Totally freaking me out!
I loaded up the kids in the bike trailer/stroller thingy, got the dog hooked up with this harness and leash... and got my new podcasts uploaded to my iPod. I was ready to go...
All I could do was think... hey, what if people see me run... with all this fat! Duh... I am fat whether or not I run, running will make me less fat so I talked myself down off the ledge and we set out on our journey.
Surprising it was much hotter than I had thought, man we weren't down two houses and I was sweating buckets (a sign of a good work out, and a girl who has no heat tolerance). We did complete our whole training session, 38 minutes of C25K!! I managed to do it outside, feeling the sun, sweat, and breeze it was a beautiful thing! I had wobbly legs when I returned to my house... the kids had a great time and the dog was plain tired, he laid on the garage floor waiting for us to get our act together to go inside.
It was a wonderful morning!
