So even though I have been thinking about not running the Glass Slipper Challenge, the more I think about it, the more I think I can do it! I have been losing weight like it’s going out of style and I feel more confident now that I have a friend who is standing behind me helping me and is my cheerleader for sure. Kristen has been cheering me on even on one of my bad days. It feels so good to be able to just walk a full mile and not be completely out of breath. I love how easy each new day it is that comes that makes it easier and easier to do. I am actually planning on signing up for a 5k in the Baltimore/DC area on 8/23 and also one in Wilmington on 9/7. I then will be looking for my first 10k and then my first 1/2 Marathon to run. I feel that if I can do it I know I will be ready to run! Only 1 month and a few days until it’s sign up time for the Princess Half and Glass Slipper Challenge so I need to decide if I want to run both or just one. Decisions Decisions.
I am going up to the Raleigh/Durham area this weekend to get fully fitted for new running shoes and I am looking forward to it. I am also going to get some Compression Calf Sleeves and new socks to wear while running. My next goal is to purchase a Garmin Forerunner 220 and a Fitbit “one” as well.
