I have been working out for 6 months now. I am running, losing weight, and feeling the best I have ever in my life. This last week, I have "drank the kool-aid" as my running group would call it and started running at 4:45 every morning with Nixa Running. What an amazing group!
I found them back in November when I was looking for ways to get started. I was so intimidated by a running group AND the 4:45 time. I thought to myself, "Self, someday you will be able to run with them." I wish I would've took the plunge and joined them back in January. They are so nice and will work with you at any level. I am the slowest of the slow, but they make sure I make it back. They have ran with me. I know that I will become a better runner and make a whole lot of friends.
I am not sure if I will get used to waking up at 4 am. Holy COW, it is early, and these last few days at work I have been dragging! We ran 4 miles this morning, and then I went to boot camp to make my fat cells cry some more. I have run 17 miles so far this week! I am resting on Friday and then running 13 miles on Saturday!!! I am running a half marathon distance! How freaking cool is that!!!
Also a quick side note, my wife is a rock star. She ran 4 miles last night and did it in 35 minutes. I cannot even do 3 miles that fast! She is my hero and the love of my life!
