Running A Lap

Current Weight: 189.6 lbs.
Total Lost: 97.1 lbs.

So, today in photo class we went outside.
We were practicing taking action pictures.
I was looking at the track and thought to myself,
"I wonder if I could run a whole lap without stopping?"

So, one of my junior students Christina and I took off running.
I made it 3/4 of the way around and then pooped out.

Eighth hour I decided to try it again.
This time I ran the opposite way thinking it would be shorter.
It wasn't shorter.
AND...I made it this time!!!
I was so excited!

One day I hope I can run a little longer...maybe a marathon or something.
Hey..everyone needs goals.

The key to running is to not count miles or 1/4 miles in this case at first. Start by running for 2 minutes, then walk 5 then run 3 minutes and walk 5. AND SO ON AND SO ON. It totally works and makes you feel SO GOOD! I really love running (not that my out of shape body is doing it....)

You are looking amazing! No one will think that you are Rosie anymore!

Care! That's awesome. That's how I started. Run. Walk. Run. Walk. Then one day I found myself running more and walking less. Now I can run 10 minute miles. Its taken me a year to get to this point though. I'm so excited for you! You can do it too!
