Ran my first ten miler on Saturday. First at any distance over 10K. Not only survived but felt great. Finished at 1:27:07, which was 12 minutes better than my best training run!! Bring on the Half!

Proud to say I ran my first 5K today (Halloween!). It was a really fun themed run - superheros! I didn't really dress up, but there were some people there that I was shocked were able to run in their costumes!

Anyway, to get to the important part - I finished in 33:40. Just under an 11 minute mile, which for me is AWESOME!

Not a running WooHoo - but a life WooHoo!

After YEARS of not developing film, not printing digital pics, "un-tagging" myself on facebook and just avoiding cameras all together...

I FINALLY enjoy getting my picture taken, look forward to seeing how they turned out, and get excited to share them.

I've posted a few from a portrait session of me and my hubby (and dogs!) from last weekend in my blog if you want to check them out :)

Finished my first half and got a "survivors" medal. No PR's here just 10 miles out of 13.1 of great trail running, tons of hills and great views. I'll do my homework next time and find one that is flat and fast to see what this slogging chubby speed demon can do!

Wow I am totally impressed by the under 2 hours for your 1/2!!! WOO HOO!

Thanks for the congrats on mine - I feel great about myself but my back hurts. I am a fitness instructor so I have to teach all my classes this week and it hurts!!! But I am wearing my 1/2 marathon under armour shirt to the classes (cleaned of course!) and that makes me feel really good. Brought my medal to classes also! Gotta share the bling!

Been in a bit of a slump trying to acclimate to my "new" surroundings. (We have two residences - one NORTH and one SOUTH - just moved south for a month.) Been EATING and not really exercising.

Today I pulled myself up by the bootstraps; had an excellent nutrition day, did a full series of strength exercises and ran four miles. WOO HOO!

was trying to figure out where I could post that I am doing my 1st 1/2 this Saturday and decided maybe it is a woo hoo moment! Didn't want to wait until afterwards to woo hoo about it! I am walking b/c I am not allowed to run anymore but still very excited and getting nervous. Should be fun!

Woohoo for Veganchic and Shorty; awesome! outstanding! stupendous! incredible!

Okay, climbing onto this energy bandwagon: just tried on a pair of slacks I haven't worn for two months, and they ARE BAGGY! THAT for all the miles I've run!

I don't know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everyone.

If you think you can't, you're right. If you think you can, you're right.

WOO-HOO's For Me This Week:

1- My estimated half marathon finish time is 2:54:44. SO happy it's under 3 hours

2- Lost 2 pounds since starting with SP last week.

3- Got a Halloween costume I can also wear for the Disney Princess Half Marathon (and I didn't pay for it)

Everyone is so doing a super job this month! It is so motivating to read what everyone has done!

My big woo hoo for this month would be that I finished me 1/2 yesterday in 2:02:17 (9:20/m). Only about 3 min away from my PR! I really thought I would never come close to it again. Now I'm motivated to break it!

WOOHOO to me for finishing my first sprint triathlon this morning. I wanted to finish in under 2 hours and I made it in 1hr 54 min. I had the worst 5k time since my very first run back in 2008. I'm just glad I finished!

3 more WooHoos for me today!

#1 - had a BLAST at my 5K this morning and hung out with a bunch of "biggest losers"! Ran back twice after I crossed the finish line to run with and encourage slower participants!

#2 - Voted SP Motivator for positive attitude! Thanks to everyone who voted!

#3 - Came home from the race then jogged 1.5 with my dog, then did hills and speed work so that tomorrow can be a true day of rest!

Woo-Friggin'-Hoo - it has been an AWESOME day!!!!!
