I finally found a great race for me to run to get in the competitive spirit for my Thanksgiving Day 10k - the Fall Running Classic 5k at the YMCA where I work! It is on November 8, about 3 weeks before my 10k. I'm really excited that I'll have a chance to get a race in before the big one, as training has been on the back burner lately.
I've found myself wanting to be in maintenance mode lately. I'm so proud of how far I've come, and I'm trying to keep losing, but I feel like this could easily be my leveling off weight... However, I'm still techinically 20 pounds overweight, so for health reasons, I'm going to try to keep pushing. I know it will just get harder and harder as I get closer, but I think I've got the right mindset still, and I definitely want to lose another 10 lbs. before holiday season is here - which is my next challenge!
PS - Thank you so much to all of my loyal readers. I really appreciate all of your support and condolences about my Grandpa.
Also, please keep your questions/comments coming so I have material to blog about! It's been slow here because I'm just not feeling as inspired lately!
