The Journey of 1000 miles begins with the first step...

I was thinking of this saying as I was jogging today and watching my feet move me along the pavement, because I was reflecting on my first run. It wasn't pretty let me tell you!

It was at night (so no one would see me) and my goal was to run down my street cross over and run back...the goal was to RUN the whole way. Well I dusted off the 'workout' clothes and my husbands was like, "Uh what are you doing?" I replied cheerfully, "I'm going for a run!"....now he's a smart man and knows that when I get something in my head I want to do he just needs to step out the way LOL......

So off I go down the street and oh man did the jiggle wiggle!!!! ooooooo BABY! so much so that my underwear fell down under my butt!!!! After pulling it up twice I realized it wasn't staying up and no one can see through my pants...so....I left it there and ran the rest of the way in my bare butt..so to speak LMAO!!!!!!

Today's run was MUCH different. First my underwear stayed put :) second it was in the morning during sunlight for ALL to see and I went along streets that had many cars. Third instead of just down the street I ran from Burloak to Appleby, up Appleby to Harvester and back down Burloak home....a total of 5.06KM!!!!!!! I never knew I had it in me!........I just ran 5KM just cause....who does that??!!

So as my feet were moving this morning I was remembering my first step on this journey....

Today was another first step in this journey of doing the RockStar Adventure Race. Hearing every bodies stories about where they came from was AWESOME! Hearing about what was involved in the race was CRAZY exciting!!! I see myself doing it...out there with the team, hot, tired, muddy, wet and LOOOOOOOOOVING it!

Now I must keep my wits about me cause although we are starting off as a team of 10 only a few of us will make to the race.....so the journey of 1000 miles continues with the second step......
