Mamavation Monday: I AM a runner.

mondaysgraphicwbrown1

I conquered the first 20 minute run on C25K and I think I earned the right to say, “I am a runner.”  It was such a great feeling when I finished.  The whole time I focused on my breathing, my pace and my foot placement. I learned that running had a lot to do with mind over matter. I kept thinking about how much I wanted to be able to get home and tell my mamavation sista’s that “I made it.” I ran 1.79 miles with a pace of 11:10 (I love technology!) A little more than half way to a 5K, but I’m getting there!

I had a great Mother’s Day yesterday, we spent it celebrating my son’s first birthday with a pirate party! I couldn’t have asked for a better day.

I’m excited about mamavation tv tonight and hearing about camping.  Our family loves camping but I could definitely use some tips for camping with the little ones!

I took this picture when we were camping last year, we borrowed a pop-up camper and this is my son looking out the window at the sunrise one morning.

Here is where I am at in my challenges and I decided to add my burpee challenge that I completed to the list because, well, I’m pretty darn proud of it! I also plan on keeping the other challenges on the list once they are done too!

C25K – finished through week 6 day 1

100 Pushups – finished through week 2 day 3

Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred – finished through week 1 day 4

100 Day Burpee Challengefinished 11/8/11 !

  1. You my dear are an exercise machine!! Congrats on breaking thru the 20 mins! I still hate running.. but after mile 3 it's easy breezy. I'm gonna do a burpee challenge next month. Wanna fully commit to the squats for now. They are killing me! But I'm loving it too!

    Congrats on your achievements!!
