Chasing my Fit: After 12 weeks

20131027-150742.jpgI've been putting off running.  It has always been something that I need to push myself to start but love doing it once I'm out there.  Well I finally did it.  I started again.  It was only one mile but I ran.  What got me out there?  My good friend, Emily, was running the MCM.  Something I wish I could've done with her but the timing of Hannah threw the monkey wrench in that.  Well after texting her all throughout the mileage...I got a text "2 miles left!!!".  I decided that even though I'm not "with" her I can run with her.  I blew the dust off the treadmill and did it.

Ran a mile...a 15 minute mile but a mile no less!  My friend who got me out of the house a year ago to start my journey was running 26.2...the least I could do is stop procrastinating!  And I'd say this is pretty darn good after taking off 12 weeks!!!
