Holiday Run to Graduate!


Well, here it is!!!! Week 9 Run 3! It’s a holiday over here, so before I go stuff my face for lunch, I figured I would Graduate the program! As you can see, I still haven’t hit 5k... not even with my walking before and after... but it’s definitely not too long away until I do hit it!!! Consolidation runs for a few weeks, then will attempt to increase that distance in order to reach 5k!

The Run was beautiful. Pretty chilly... 31 degrees over here which I think would be 0 over there? Definitely felt crazy for being outside in it! But I warmed up QUICKLY!!! And when I say quickly, I was stripping down to base layers about 5 mins into the run (entertaining to watch I’m sure). Hoping Santa will bring me a zip up jacket to wear for Christmas next month so I don’t have to deal with pulling things over my head while attempting to run! 😂

But I’m rambling... and I need to go make some green beans so I don’t go empty handed to my grandmothers house!!

First I think I might pop on over and grab my badge! ;)

Yes!!!!! Grandmothers house was fun! Yummy pie and cake 😳


Hey, you did it! Absolutely fantastic and many congratulations!

I too am “consolidating” before attempting the 5k. No pressure; we can consolidate for as long as we like!

Hope you will be celebrating 🏃🏼‍♀️🎉👍

Oh I’m celebrating!!! By eating 😂😂 might buy me something new as well! We have a crazy “Black Friday” shopping deal over here that I will be attending tonight. Craziness to save some money...

Congratulations and Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!

Thank you!!!! The food was delicious! Leftovers for supper soon!! 😂

I see the bling, well done you and I hope Father Christmas brings you that jacket. Perhaps print off the post, expand the font and leave it near a fireplace?
