NON-Scale Victory:

I have been forgetting to post something awesome and positive! I  do not want to forget, so I will make it a part of  WIW!!

Last week was an amazing week with the best weekend ever! Fitbloggin was so amazingly awesome that I have too much to say about it and I am really not sure where to start with my bloggy reviews on the subject. Well, today’s weigh is the perfect excuse to  tell you about my first mile.

Yes folks, I ran an entire mile!! I know you are wondering how the heck that happened so I am going to tell you all about what led me to run that mile!

Friday when I registered for fitbloggin I was directed to the New Balance table.  I had signed up for the Fitbloggin 5K which was sponsored by New Balance. Well, NB hooked me up!! I was handed a pair of running shorts, socks and new running sneakers.  I was so overwhelmed with meeting everyone and all the awesomeness of fitbloggin so I did not take pictures of the swag.  So registration then to the hotel bar…meeting only the coolest bloggers around for the very first time…Pomtini reception…long line for drinks, starving people…we went out to dinner.

Dinner was amazing! We had a huge table outside and it was a beautiful night! We had to add a second table when the Shrinking Jeans girls showed up!!

Then we hung out in the hotel bar until Lissa finally showed up! I had so much fun chatting with the SJ girls! It was hard to pry myself from them and go to bed! My dumb-butt signed up for a 5K remember?!?

Fast forward to the next morning…the wake up call was way too early!! I did think a little about rolling over and going back to bed but I got up and prepared myself. Thankfully Mo was there to cheer me on! We headed to the meeting area and started chatting with our peeps. I found myself chatting with Mary, Sue and Lissa and we decided that we were going to run the 1-mile route instead of the 5K. We had many reasons but what it boils down to is this….ALL FOUR OF US RAN A WHOLE FREAKING MILE!!! I think it was the first mile any of had run in like forever!! Here is the blurry finish line:

That’s me in the grey, Sue in the green and Mary in the red….Lissa was on the other side of me but unseen in the camera’s eye. She was hiding!

Then we:

I am so super proud of my mile! I am super proud of Mary’s mile!! I am super proud of Lissa’s mile!! I am super proud of Sue’s mile!!

What are you proud of this week?!?
