Well, it's a couple days after my family celebrated an early Thanksgiving and I actually was able to get out for a nice walk down to the Santa Cruz Wharf from my niece's house with my daughter and husband. It was a couple days of inactivity and eating a bit too much food. Putting it all in perspective though, it's really about fitness and changing my unhealthy habits to healthy ones and I'm on my way. I have been invited by my sister and niece to join them in a 10K/half marathon challenge next April and I'm thinking about doing the 10K. I can't even run a half mile let alone 6, but with 5 months to train, I think I might be able to do it. And, what a present to myself for my 43 birthday which will be just 3 weeks later. I've never been athletic, and would feel so powerful if I could do it. It's serious, so I have to take a little bit longer to ensure I can make the committment.
