|Ready to run!|
Since then, I've taken my health and my diet more seriously. I lost 30lb and picked up a serious exercise bug. Unfortunately, this part of my life has taken a bit of a backseat to motherhood but I'm running when I can. The YMCA daycare freaked me out so I have not headed back to Pump Class, but, with the help of babysitters, my husband and my treadmill, I find time to work out as I am able.
I have been trying to run a 5K road race for a couple of years and somehow I always get "5K-itis". The night before I get sick, the morning of the race its pouring rain or I get called into work. I ended up cancelling my run again and again. So here I am, ready and freaking willing to run this race come what may.

There were a couple of moments of panic as I saw everyone else in their proper weather running equipment and realized I forgot my running watch. Basically, I just told myself to suck it up, turn up the music and run.
