New Shoes & Still Going Strong!

Several of you have asked me in the past couple of days how the running is going. I am proud to say it’s going GREAT! I am making my goal of 4 times a week (or more) and have gone 4 of the 5 days so far this week. I woke up Wednesday and went running alone at 6:30am! If that is not dedication, I don’t know what is! I was bugging Tim after Thanksgiving dinner to go running with me but he said he would walk – so we compromised and just power-walked the 1.5 miles with three big dogs – so we had a crew with us! I’ve only seen about a 3 lb loss since starting to run about a week ago, but I took measurements also and I’ll start comparing that every couple of weeks or so.

Tim and I both got some new running shoes and they make a HUGE difference on my feet/toes. They feel great. I also got some running clothes as well so I don’t look so dorky anymore :) I still can’t run the whole time and my knees have started to hurt but I can definitely tell a difference now compared to my first couple of days. I’m enjoying going more now but I still wouldn’t use the word “like” just yet. I feel guilty if I don’t go though so that’s good motivation! I also only had one piece of apple pie for dessert yesterday so I was very proud of myself for the self control!

So that’s my update for today. Hopefully I’ll have only have good news to report from here on out! I really feel this is something I can stick with – especially with the cooler weather!


  1. Good for you!

  2. YAY for new shoes! Good job on only having one piece of pie!

  3. Good Job Steph, it isn’t easy to stay committed but it sounds like you are on the right TRACK!!
