RuNNiNG and LoViNG it!!!!!!!

Nine years ago I met my hubby. He was a runner a hard core runner.....he wore those shorty shorts... so short they made me giggle! Nine years ago I tried to run.  I tried really hard and it was just not working for me.  I hated it. I did not get it? What was the point in working out? Who wants to sweat and be in pain?  I gave up and went to Starbucks when Christian went for his runs. 
Something clicked for me nine years later.  I started Bootcamp as a way to relieve my stress a couple of months ago.  I ended up loving it! I realized I could do more than I was giving myself credit.  So one day I laced up my sneakers and went for a run walk.  I would run for five minutes, walk for 1 minute. I was doing okay and I was happy.  The next week I tried to go without stopping and I did it.  You have no idea how proud I am of myself for running.  I have now worked up to doing 5km which is super crazy and I love it.  I try to run everyday and I am now enrolled in a half marathon clinic.  I am not sure about it but I know I can do it! 
I have no pictures of me running or doing Bootcamp so here is a picture of my sneakers taken on my Blackberry:)
