I'm Back!

Well, friends, it is official!

Today, was my last doctor's visit and I have been cleared to run.

I was 99% sure that was gonna happen, but that 1% of doubt haunted me a little.  Boy, was I relieved when she said how happy she was I felt better and glad that I had a few good runs.  Yeah!

So, here we are, this chapter of my life is over.  Well, over for now.  You see, disc disease does not go away.  I am going to continue focusing on and strengthening my core and hope for the best.  I am determined to be healthy and the more I move the better I feel.

I would like to give a big thanks to all of my readers who have given me motivation, support and advice during these past few months.  It has meant the world to me.  I started this blog so that I can motivate my readers but I wanted to be motivated too, and you did not let me down.  Thank you!!!

As I said before, I am still on the treadmill and running at a slower pace.  I plan to have my first run outside this weekend.  Anyone want to join me for a slow and steady couple miles?

Today, I ran 2.5 miles and I have a 3 mile run planned for tomorrow.  I am registered for the Narrow River 5k, May 19, and I am so looking forward to it!

My fundraising has hit a stand still, but I expect to have some ups and downs with that.  I know it will all come together and I will reach my goal.

Now, on to Weight Watchers.  I am down 3 pounds!  I finally "get it" and like how it all works.  And boy, you get a lot of points for running.   A 40 minute run is 10 activity points, I like that.

Run strong, think big!
