Well Hello!

I know, I know it's been like a years since I last posted but I'm back!  So remember my crazy goal of wanting to run a half marathon by the age of 40?  Well, my 40th is like 3.5 months away and honestly I'm no where near ready to attempt to run to the mailbox let alone a half!  But this morning when the alarm went off at 4:30 am I groaned and took my first step to making a half a reality.  Stupid as that sounds, I have to keep that in mind so I wouldn't just roll over hit the alarm button and go back to sleep.  I signed up for a 3 week personal trainer (which was a free offer for teacher appreciation at school), and today was the first class.  Yes, my legs turned to jello approximately 3 minutes into the class which is never good, I'm a total weakling, I felt like giving up about 3,000 times, and almost cried a couple of times, but instead I laughed out loud at myself.  I'm sure the other 5 people in the class were thinking I was delirious!  But I did it!  After squatting, planking, lifting and many other strenuous things, I was super excited to be done for the day ... When the trainer said,"everyone outside" I thought how nice to go out and cool off!  WRONG!  It was running time!!! Remember my jello legs!  Yep, they looked really great trying to run!  I wanted to cry but I pushed forward and had to stop and walk for a bit but I completed my task!  Yippee!  Finally, it was over!  I texted Craig as I got in my car asking him to come find me in case I died on my way home!  
So, basically, I am super sore today, and can barely walk, without whimpering, but it always has to start somewhere!  3 weeks of this is gonna kick my rear!  But I have a goal to reach and this is gonna help me get there!  (hopefully I will be anle to move for my next class). 

Here's me before...
Here's me after...
Wish me luck I'm gonna need it!
