Exactly one year ago today I started my Fit and Fab journey. The changes that have happened within a year have been amazing. I could not have done any of it without the support of my family and close friends.
I joined a boot camp called Camp Gladiator and try my hardest to go at least 3 days a week. It was definitely tough during the winter with those below freezing temps in the mornings. But I have a some great friends that I get to work out with and an awesome trainer that is always so encouraging!
I completed the Couch Potato to 5K app and even started the Couch Potato to 10K app. I did not finish that one because it was not challenging enough.
I ran my first race, a 5K, in August. On Saturday, I completed my biggest challenge yet-a half marathon (13.1 miles)!!! I literally fought through blood, sweat, and tears to train for that one. I do not see myself ever doing a long distance run again, but I am up for shorter races. I was always one of those people that asked runners "why"? Now I face that same question. My answer: because I can. My legs may be short, but they are strong. I do not take that for granted and am thankful my body still can function.
Am I content where I am? No.
There is still more weight to lose, more muscle to gain, and more challenges to face.
