Ahead of the Game

You heard me right! I started my running goal and I'm ahead of where I wanted to be by now! That means I'm probably going to shoot for 366 miles before the end of the year instead of just 300. Remember? I had decided on 300 miles because I couldn't really run before Hunter was born. I figured a solid 300 would give me about a mile per day once I was able to run again.

I'm happy to announce that as of today I've officially run 37 miles! Most of the mileage I have accumulated has been on our treadmill because I can run at nap time and not have to take the stroller out. I'll tell ya though, the miles that I've done with the stroller outside should count as 2 miles for every 1! That stroller added in with the slight elevation around here can kick my butt. And they do, every time I try to run outside. Anyways, I have 37 miles under my belt and I've been running for 30 days. {31 of my miles are from the month of April alone!}

If you're keeping track, that means I'm 7 miles ahead and I don't plan on slowing down any time soon. Actually, I can't slow down right now. I have that 5k to run in June and I've already paid to do it! That means that all of my runs from here on out need to be at least 3.25 miles so that I can stay on track for that race. I say race, but I'm not doing this to set any records or to be the fastest, I just needed something to work towards and this seemed reasonable.

I can't wait to see where I am at the end of May!!!

Oh, and PS, I'm officially down 19.2 pounds and only have 20.8 more to go to my pre-pregnancy/goal weight! If I keep running and eating right hopefully they'll just melt off!!!!! Let's go ahead and say it, by the time I run the 5k I want these 20.8 last pounds gone! That means I have 53 days to lose 20.8 pounds. I can do it! I know I can, I just have to stay motivated, which means that you're going to have to put up with me bragging about my accomplishments!!!!!
