Thursday Morning Run Club

April 21, 2011

After packing on the lbs since starting Grad school well over a year ago, I decided to get off my ass and do something about it. I won’t be doing anything as public or as intense as my ‘Quest for 185’ a few years back, but I need to do something. As  such, I started a running club at the office. We meet once a week, and run, stumble, or walk our way through a 5-K. Today was our second venture out, and the group is coming along. I think I need to slow things down a bit though, as nobody was able to finish at the pace we started on, and one of us lost his breakfast after one of the hills.

Onward and upward.


Random thoughts from ‘The Alaskan’

I’ve started a new quest. Much like my quest for 185, I’m on a quest to drop a few more lbs for summer. I started this week off at a hefty 189 lbs and have set my 3 month goal at 175 lbs. I have until September 4th to drop the weight and I’m pretty confident that I can do so without vastly changing much aside from adding in a few workouts and eating a little healthier. I dropped down to 184 after my run this evening and a late lunch, so that’s already 5 lbs. Granted, most of that weight was water and pizza, but a gain is a gain (or would it be a loss is a gain?) and I’m happy about it.
