Goals are dreams with deadlines. Stop dreaming! I took control of my life and with the help of many wonderful people I was able to lose 135 pounds in 11 months. Set a goal, tell everyone who will listen, and stick to your plan. You can do it!!
Last Friday I had big plans to run long in the hills above Boise. Derek and I had planned to run Lucky Peak 3 times and add some greenbelt at the end to round it out. We did one lap (11 miles and 3200 feet of gain) and then Christie joined us. On the second lap Derek said he was spent and two would be his max. I quickly agreed and the three of us had a nice comfortable run to finish out the second lap.
It was now past midnight and officially Derek's birthday. We celebrated with chocolate milk and all three of us sat on the tailgate chatting while looking at the stars. Good fun.
The pace felt rather slow but when it was all said and done we were below 24 hour pace even with sitting and relaxing along the way.
