Who knew I could run and enjoy it? Who knew I’d look forward to those weird fun runs with the maniacs all dressed up and, like, -gasp-, running?

I was in the Color Me Rad run last Sunday and it was ridiculously fun. My buddies and my guys showed up to cheer me on and it was… just… really something. I never ever thought I would do these kinds of things, even Ben mentioned that, just after he said he was proud of me. <3

Next up is the Dirty Dash in August, then another color run in September (with Penny and Will!! squee!), then Day of the Tread sometime in October. AWESOME.

Who is this girl? Who knew? :-)

P.S. If you are curious, I was 200lbs in Dec 2011. I finally decided to do something about that in January 2012. I’ve lost 25lbs so far. The main goal isn’t to fit in a certain size or even be a certain weight, I’m going for healthy and using a weight goal as a basic boring guideline. I know I’ll be much healthier if I keep going to that weight goal (150 based on my doc’s suggestion). I guess my ultimate goal is to see the person in the mirror look the same as the person in my head.
