My brother Steven has been training the same time as me for the 5k.  He is lucky and gets to do it in a gym.  We did set a goal to workout every Saturday together.  He came over a little before 10 this morning and we went on a brisk walk out in the cold.  Check it out. We put 3 miles of pavement behind us.

We had a lot of fun.  Talked about a lot of things.  It took us 70 minutes to do the walk.  I am excited to be able to someday run it and not walk it with him.  I need to remember to take it slow and not be discouraged. 

Watched a killer movie last night called Spirit of the Marathon.  I cried and became determined to run one before the end of 2012.  Jenn said she would do one with me.  I am glad I watched it last night, I was really wanting to cheat and eat.  It got me re-focused and excited.

Thank you everyone who has helped me stay on track and commented on my blog.  I do read them and they do mean a lot to me!

Chris! Didn't you just LOVE the Spirit of the Marathon?!? It had the same effect on me. Trust me when I say there's nothing more satisfying than finishing a race - no matter the distance.

Thanks for your inspiration and determination. I too am trying to turn over some new leaves this year and become healthier and more fit. You've totally got it!!
