Happiness is: a fitness goal01/18/2012 at 3:20 pm | Posted in Happiness is | 37 Comments

You guys! I’m doing this.
Well, I’m walking it. Or walk-running it, if the planets align and my sports bra holds up. But it still counts. I’ve never walked six miles in a row. Up and down a huge bridge. In one of my favorite cities.
I’m beyond excited.
Also: a secret. Marc and I have embarked on a healthy eating and exercise regimen, and I’ve already lost eight pounds! He’s lost nearly 20, which is simply amazing. For me, having a fitness goal like the Bridge Run sure does help. So does laying off the sweet tea and cupcakes.
I’ll keep you posted on my “training” (i.e. stroller-hiking through our hilly neighborhood). And, of course, I’ll need your help along the way, especially from you wunder-people who participate in races like this all the time.
Special thanks to the Deputy for helping me realize that I can actually do this. And for already giving me a ton of good advice (carry Kleenex, break in new shoes early). She is a veteran bridge runner, and I can’t wait to experience this with her … from a few miles back.
