Now It's Time to Get Serious


Okay so my main goal of 2008 is to RUN a 10k.  I plan to run the 10k on the 24th of July.  There is one before the Days of '47 Parade and it ends on the pathway of the parade.  So as you end your 10k the spectators for the parade cheer you on as they line the streets.  It sounds like so much fun.  Besides it is just in time for my goal of losing 40 pounds by Aly's birthday.  I have 13 to go and I am going to finish it with a bang (aka a 10k).  So for all of you who want to join me here are the essentials you will need:
And I almost forgot; an ipod

Good Luck to us ALL!!

Yesterday I ate veggies all day long at work, then made vegetable soup for dinner, then at 8:30 went to Iceburg for a hot-fudge/pineapple shake. But today, I am back on.

Good for you. I wish I could join you, but if you're still on the bandwagon mid-August, I'd love to jump on! Good luck and keep us posted on your progress. I think it's awesome you are so close to your goal weight-congrats!

A 10K is tough but doable Bryan and I did one when we first got married. Any more than that and I think I would die. I have to find time to run then I could train. When do you run?

I get up at 6:15 with a friend in my ward. We go before husbands go to work. It's hard but I only go cause I know she's waiting for me. It helps.

If you turn to the side you are going to dissapear!! I wish I could run with you, it would be so good for me. I will run the one on the fourth of July in honor of you running yours in Utah. I don't think the fourth of July one is a 10k though, it may only be a 5k. Anyway, good luck and keep it up. You inspire me to do better with my working out!!
