What I Would Run For

How bad is it that I would run for this?
It's a gel that runners eat before and while running to help replenish what they've lost and give them an extra boost (the ones with caffeine, of course).
Yesterday I squished it (that's right, squished... it's like cake frosting consistency) into my mouth, and I was in LOVE.
It tasted like yummy candy.  I did feel a little bit more energized on the walk home.
I've been running my three miles and walking the rest home.

Of course, this isn't the only thing I would run for!

clarity of mind
weight loss
***escape from reality***

I was looking for a pair of leggings to wear under my sarong/pareo for hula practice, and I ran across a pair of size 7 denim capris (pre-marriage wear). I put them on, zipped them up, and it fit! I was amazed! I love that I've been losing weight every week, but hitting this milestone meant even more to me!

My friend, A, gave me a wonderful compliment on FaceBook the other day. I mentioned that I walked to and from the park for play day (5 miles). I didn't think it was that far, but then again distances seem shorter when you're usually in a car. LOL. She told me that I was amazing for walking the 5 miles, and that I inspired her to start working out. She has been working out for the last 3 weeks and almost 5 days a week. She had her baby in December, and had been tired of the baby weight. She is super sweet, and this totally made my day. Thanks, A!
