So last week I read THIS post over on Heather Drive, and this week I get to post my own. I've been thinking for a while that I really need to change something up around here. Weight-wise, things are fine, but in terms of fitness, energy, overall feeling... well, something had to change. I've been trying to eat well, but that's not enough. Heather's post gave me a little push, and last night I took the first leap.

See that picture, with the check mark next to week 1, day 1? Yup, that's my check mark.  :-)  I did my first run last night and it went well. I pumped myself up by saying it would be easy, I do lots of walking... but a little voice was nagging that I haven't been doing nearly as much lately, and I was worried I wouldn't be able to do it.

Well, I did it. It definitely got me sweating, but at no point did I think I couldn't finish. Its such a little step, but I'm pretty proud I took it... and I'm putting this out there to make myself accountable to all of you, to encourage myself to see this completely through. E is starting as well, and I love having a long-distance running buddy. Encouragement for either of us is definitely welcome. 

Beginning last night actually worked out perfectly, too. I had the most beautiful weather to start this little experiment with.

Here's hoping I'll be back in 8 weeks with a great recap post!
