BUT- I'm getting running shoes tomorrow. I can't believe how excited I am about that. It's so weird...to go from the unathletic, asthmatic, clumsy kid to now. Well, I'm still the clumsy kid, but ya can't win 'em all.
I still need to register for the 5k in April, but I'll do it soon. I'm a little nervous, because I found out it's not a road run, it's like over-the-river-and-through-the-woods...but if I can make it without breaking an ankle, I think it will be fun. And I just found out today that registration for the Color Run in Charlotte opens next week, and the run is in October. I'm super-excited about that one because it's a LOT closer and I might be able to persuade a few people that I know to do it with me. And, there's this guy I know (wink, wink) who said he will run with me on the weekends to help me prep for all of this.
I know I'm rambling. I'm tired, and I'm waiting for the laundry to stop. And because I'm tired, I'm even worse than usual with words. I wish I could adequately convey my level of excitement and anticipation and accomplishment. I don't know how many people have been reading this, but a WHIIIIIILE back, I put up a picture of a slightly-pudgy looking me. I was at about 29% body fat when I took that picture. Way less healthy than I thought I was. The changes I've made in my life have affected my body (down to 20% body fat) and my outlook on so many things. I'm looking forward to trying all kinds of new things this year. I'll be running, and I'm trying my very first Crossfit class this weekend. I'm terrified of that, so wish me luck!!
Dryer finally stopped. Rambling complete.
