I really feel like I’ve been half-assing it on the running front. My progress has been positive, but I really don’t feel like I’ve been pushing myself hard enough.
To change that I’m setting, what would be for me, a ridiculous mileage goal.
10 miles total by 11:59 PM Saturday.
Not sure if I’m gonna run 2 miles a day for 5 days straight or run a couple 3 mile days. Look for daily progress updates.
Anybody else up to the challenge?

Running a 5k around my hood felt awesome. Totally worth it.
Stress eating a pint of Ben and Jerry’s Half Baked Froyo was neither great or worth it. I’ll have to run four 5ks just to burn it off.
Running Day 2015/07/09 I've been living a very sleep deprived life lately and kind of overslept this morning. Not going to beat myself up over it as I only got 4 hours the night before. I still suited up and ran a mile. Lungs were achy. Still glad I did what I did though.
58 days until my first 5K.
It’s been two months since I started running and about eight months since I started working towards eliminating refined sugar from my diet. It’s hasn’t been easy, but it’s definitely been a rewarding process.
One of those rewards is being able to share that, for the first time in over a decade, I weigh under 300 lbs.
While I don’t personally see it in the mirror, I feel it in my clothes and my health. My pant size has gone from a 56 to a 48, shirt size is a 3XL from a 4XL, and my blood pressure meds have been cut in half.
I know most people end up gaining the weight back. Continuing to run is the key to me losing more weight and maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
This may be a major milestone, but I know I’m just getting started.
