Talking Ran my 1st 5k!!

This weekend I accomplished a major goal.. I ran an entire 5k race! No walk breaks and I finished in 34:04! I have come to really love the atmosphere of the race scene. This was my 3rd race but the 1st time I ran the whole thing. I have another 5k in September and am going to attempt a 10k in October!

Mini-goal #4 (ala Beck Diet Solution): Lose 5 pounds AGAIN. Start date: July 20,2015 (last time took 60 days)
LABOR DAY CHALLENGE: Just stick to IP (Started 4/29) until Labor Day, no weight goal. Start exercising daily, even if it is just walking.
