My goal of an Ultra Marathon
Sunday, April 22, 2012
Woo Hoo! My goal for this year was to do an Ultra, which is a 30 mile run. Well my group of friends convinced me to join them in doing the Potawatomie Trail Run on April 14th. It wasn't just an Ultra, it was on trails with lots of hills in Pekin, IL. To add to our fun it was also at night and included lots of mud and creek crossings. I cannot believe I did this!!! I am so stinking proud of myself. I am hoping that I will keep this positive feeling going. Yes, I have the endurance to run 30 miles but I am still over weight. That is where my struggle is. I cannot stop over eating. It is a constant struggle for me to stop eating after I get off work. I am getting back into Sparkpeople because I need the motivation to finally get over this hurdle.
