Extra! Extra! Fat girls can run for at least a week!!

Hola' Friends!
Well I did it! I completed the first week of Couch 2 5K! When I was on my final run of this week about half way through I realized “Holy Crap I’m running and not counting the seconds in my head till I stop!” I really looked crazy running around the neighborhood with a big ol' grin on my face. Week one in the one to Week 2..Dun Dun DUNNN... I am nervous, but excited at the progress I have made. To commemorate my first week running my husband bought me some AMAZING running shoes. They are the most expensive pair of shoes I have ever owned. I love them. They are light weight, the soles of me feet aren’t screaming at me, and the best part..they are pink.

That being said, I have had an overwhelming response to my Blog, so many people encourging me, and running along side me with Couch25K. Keep the e-mails, comments, and blog shares coming! I love to keep up with you as I hope you like keeping up with me! This week has so many exciting things going on! I am glad I have my runs to distract me. Sunday I went antiquing and found some awesome stuff. Every time I go antiquing I start reminiscing about my grandma. She has some really cool things that I never took time to appreciate as a kid. I think one day soon I should tell y’all all about my grandma. She really is one of the most interesting, creative people I know, we made butter one summer with a churn, and hand churned ice cream was a staple by her pool in the summer. She also says very old fashioned things that I want to start writing down. Like “That boy eats and eats like he has hollow legs!” Yes, I think I will tell y'all about my grandma one day.
 If you haven’t noticed I chase rabbits a lot. I distract myself with other story’s in the middle of another story...well WELCOME TO MY WORLD! I talk exactly as I am typing to you now. My poor poor friends and family. It must be hard to keep up with my train of though. Any who back to my exciting week. Thursday my friend who was sitting on my Kindergarten teachers lap crying with me (see previous blog) Ashley is coming up to Washington for a visit! She live in Colorado now and is expecting so this is more then likely the last time to hang out before the baby is born. We are going to Portland for a day trip, then 2 hours up to Canada staying at an awesome hotel, then WHALE WATCHING! I have lived in Washington for 3 and a half years and never really played tourist. Now I get to play tourist with my oldest friend! ::happy dance, happy dance:: Well once again thank you all for reading, I really appreciate every single one of you. I love all your feedback and encouragement. Here is to WEEK 2 of running!

  1. Congrats on your progress. Glad to hear you are having fun with your blog. I'm going to visit your grandma again toward the end of the month. We just had a nice visit a few weeks ago and we decided we wanted to dye fabric! So that's what we are doing this next time. Fun stuff. Photos will be posted on my blog afterwards...
    Keep up the good work Amanda! Maybe your grandmas and I can come visit one day.
