Non-Scale Victory!! I finally did it!

button

I am participating in another new Linkup today.  This is for celebrating a Non-Scale Victory!  Life By Lex is the host and she has a really great blog, you should totally check it out!

I  had a major Non-Scale Victory yesterday! Like HUGE for me!  I have been working really hard over the course of the last year on being able to run a mile and guess what?  I TOTALLY DID IT YESTERDAY!!!  I ran a mile without stopping!!  :)

I am so geeked.  It felt so good.  Last year at this time I was just starting to walk daily and couldn't even run a tenth of a mile. I haven't ran a mile straight since high school!

I am doing The Color Run 5K this August in Grand Rapids and am hoping to be able to run most of it.  I have 4 months to work up to the 3.1 miles and I am really thinking I will be able to do it!

Have any of you had a Non-Scale victories this past week?  Whether it be mentally, physically or in weight loss! Share it with me and others!

AWESOME!

I too one day will be a runner! I started last year and then got side-lined with foot trouble. The desire left but I am hoping it will return soon!

That is so awesome! Good for you! I tried this last spring and never got to the 1 mile mark. I did 3/4 mile and thought I was dying. Keep going, you are doing great!

Hey girl I am visiting from the link up! Holy crap that is awesome! I have NEVER ran a mile, not even in high school!! I have always heard that once you get the first mile down, it is easy to add more, so that should be encouraging!! Great job!!
