run like the wind Erin!

run like the wind Erin!

Yesterday was fitness day at the high school, where all the teenagers, including my Erin, are tested and measured on a variety of physical challenges so the government can measure their fitness.


6 months ago my Erin ran a 16 minute mile.  (Ran, a.k.a, walked without much attempt, along with most of the other 16, 17 and 18-year-old girls in her class.)

But Yesterday.

Oh Yesterday — Erin ran an 8 minute mile — and came in 3rd amongst ALL the girls in her class.  With the #2 girl only an arm’s length in front of her.  Oh.  And the other 2 girls were Seniors.  Ha!  Erin is a Sophomore!

The story just kept getting better and better!!!

Pretty.  D@mn.  Good.  Erin!

Pretty.  D@mn.  Good.

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!
