So this weekend I had a great time running. Saturday my stepson and I ran the #colormerad race at the Virginia Beach Athletic Complex. It was a 5K and i was all off road. First time running not on pavement in a long time. But we ran really quick for me. Finished it with my fastest pace ever. Not anything unexpected because at the Shamrock 8K I ran about a minute average faster than my normal pace. But this time I am more in shape then when I was for the 8K. Feels good to run and not feel like a burden but instead is really enjoyable. The weather sucked but we had fun. My stepson got a great laugh at the college kids beer bonging during the race.
I might be going out on a limb here but I think I will put it down on paper (I think that makes it official). I am going to run a half marathon at the end of the summer (I keep saying try but there's no trying really). My body is so far holding up except for a few small aches and pains so I might as well put a goal in mind and push myself. It has really helped me lose weight and I have enjoyed it. Being a sports kid my whole life I like having a competition.
My wife keeps getting close and closer. its really exciting to see her growing our child inside her. I can't wait to meet my daughter. I am so happy I have lost this weight so I can be a more active father and enjoy being the father I want to be.
On a healthy note: Lost 2.6 lbs (two weeks since I was out of town last weekend). I am still kicking ass and taking names. Even with 3 baby showers and a birthday. NO MORE CAKE PLEASE.
