Day 1: Goal — MET

Day 1: Goal — MET

Today is Monday..the last one of August 2012.  I met the day out on my street, sneakers laced and tied.  Wiped the sleep from my face, and began running.    ………3 miles is what today required.   And I did it.  It felt hard.  I haven’t been running enough lately.  But it’s Today.    It’s Day 1.    Day 1 of the next 20 weeks.    20 weeks that will take me from that spot, outside my house, at the end of my driveway……all the way to the Starting Line of the Disney Marathon in Orlando Florida.  20 weeks…to get to the beginning.  Yup.  That’s how this goes….


Ciao for now….Diane



About Diane

Ciao! My name is Diane. I'm a wife, a mom, a working professional, and a Weight Watcher from New Jersey. I started blogging in 2011, at 45 years old, when I was training for my first Half Marathon at Rutgers on April 22, 2012. Since then, I've lost 80 pounds, completed my Half Marathon goal and gone on to train for and run my very first Full Marathon. On Jan 13, 2013, I ran the Disney Marathon in Orlando, Fl! What an incredible day. As the saying goes -- "The person who starts the race is not the same person who finishes the race." I am forever changed! So now we move on to the next phase of this journey! Come along. We're in this together!! Ciao for now!
