1 down 9 to go!

January 28, 2010

As I wrap up a very busy day & come to the end of a very busy week it has hit me that I have just nine short months until I reach my pink goal.  WOW!  That's sounds so far away until I think about all of the training that has to be done between now and then.  YIKES!  I know it's going to happen but its hard to believe I'll go from doing 2.25 miles per day to doing 20 miles in a day.  One step at a time...just one step at a time...

Thanks to the ecouragement of many, I'm working out each day even when I dont feel like it & am remaining true to a healthy balanced diet.  Its been shocking to me how easy it is to make healthy food choices when you look for them.  Yes...I'm still craving McDonalds (I was a fast food junkie!) & yes I miss having a cocktail when I'm out with friends but I feel so much better than before.  Just the feeling I have from not being winded makes a big difference. feels great!

So tonight as I head to bed early I realize I have 1 month of training complete & just 9 more to go.  In just 9 short months I'll know the rush everyone keeps talking about from doing the walk...the love everyone feels...the kindness everyone celebrates.  What a lucky woman I am.  I can see the finish line from here & it looks amazing!
