Over these last few weeks, I've realized how dedicated you have to be to see improvement with running. It takes real commitment to get out there everyday and jog a bit more or a bit faster each time you head outside. Jogging outside is so much different than being on the treadmill. It is so much harder! Don't get me wrong, the scenery is much better outside, but the pavement is harder on your feet & knees.
For last night's run, JJ and I did a 2 mile jog together around our neighborhood. It has been really great to have him for support while I'm taking on this new challenge. He's been helping me push just a little further each time we've been out jogging. That's what it's about, setting small goals, like okay - I can make it to the mailbox, then continuing to push more as we jog up the hills. I'm thankful that we've decided to run the 5k together this weekend! It's going to be very helpful to have him by my side as we line up for the start of the run. His pace is faster than mine, so we may or may not finish together, but I'm really pumped for everything and know that we'll have a great time on Sunday.

So, that's the latest with me...oh yeah, and JJ and I are planning a wedding, but that's just a side note! Hope life is treating your and yours well, remember to give thanks for life's daily blessings and not to sweat the small stuff. Enjoy the day, Thanks for checking in!
