Yesterday I woke up early and ran 3.1 miles on the treadmill. (My Dad told me I need to stop calling it the dreadmill. Running is really a mental sport so I think it's pretty good advice.)
I stopped just a few times during the run, but I was so happy to finish. It boosted my confidence that I will be able to finish the race Saturday. I haven't run outside in a long time so we will see if it makes any difference.
In order to continue losing weight I signed up for a Diet Bet. Basically you sign up and pay a fee. If you lose the percentage of your weight that is the goal by the end of the bet, then you win your money back plus a portion of what everyone else put in who didn't meet the goal. I read about it on another blog and have signed up for 2 others in the past but didn't even try after I signed up. This bet is for 6 months instead of just a month like the others. It started one week ago yesterday and so far I have lost 2.4 pounds!
We are getting our company race shirts tomorrow and I love the saying they chose to put on them so I will share that with you tomorrow...
