Today was my rest day but the weather was so nice I had to get out and run. I met Derek at Polecat and did a nice easy loop in the 59 degree temperature at 6am! It didn't feel super warm but I ran in just shorts for half of the six miles just so I could say I did. It is Idaho AND November after all!!
A2O Fitness for their Express Circuit class and the instructor Jenny reminded me of something that was key to my first weight loss success. We normally do the full circuit twice and today at the halfway point she said something like, This is where your body wants to give up and you have to push through it!

I lost 60 pounds in just over 2 months, mostly by riding my bike in the Boise Foothills and around Boise State. People would ask me what my secret to success was.

Make it a great day!
