Pic sidenote: it's one of the ones the Justice Run posted on Facebook, so I tagged myself in it. My sister told me she had to look closely to be sure it was me! I guess 42 lbs does tend to make a difference in one's looks, huh?
Anyway, as you can see, Lori is wearing her 6-month-old daughter, who looked like this during the time that she wasn't sleeping:
|Yes, I asked Lori if I could plaster her baby's face on the Interwebs|
I'm pretty sure that being distracted by a cute baby could make almost any walk bearable. Maybe Lori will just come with me to Seattle.
Post-postcript on that walk is that my sister pointed out this little medical treat: for every pound lost, it's a 10 pound force reduction on your knees when running.
So there's that.
In terms of "progress", I can tell you unequivocally that this walk was a true example of the progress I'm making, and I really hope it encourages you to get moving. Here's the thing: as you know, I'm training to walk the Seattle Half Marathon at the end of November. Training. (I know, LOL) But I really do have a training plan I'm following! And Sunday was supposed to be my "EZ" (yes, that really is supposed to be "easy") day. Are you listening? 3.1 miles IS easy! Yes, friends, at the end of my 22nd week of walking, and now as I train to do 13.1 miles, 3.1 is absolutely, positively, beyond a shadow of a doubt, classified as EASY. WOO HOO!
