Y'all this clean eating thing is sticking with me this time. Whew... so much relief. I can see a difference and the jeans don't have to stretch as far right now. I really think this is the longest I have gone without Diet Coke since birth so that is the real miracle right there. Seriously.
So last week I did a 5k to support one of my friend's charities. The start time was 2:00 pm which is pretty awesome. I can get behind a race that doesn't require you to set an alarm clock. The 5k was an out and back and decently hilly so we'll call it a good challenge. The last 1/2 mile or so I pass this 8 year old on a hill. He is quick to pass me back. For the record, I did not chase him down for the purpose of passing him but he ran out of steam in the last 1/8 of a mile or so. As I go past him I give a little "good job, let's go buddy" and he just looks at me. He finished right behind me and I see him again walking up the stairs to where they were handing out awards. I congratulated him and asked him if it was his first 5k. He says it was his 11th and he wasn't too happy with his time (we were around 25 minutes). "My fastest time is 17 minutes". Wow. I guess he was a little off that day :)
The good news is we both took home first in our age groups and a sweet hand painted award.
No Diet Dr. Pepper in 14 days. Now that deserves an award.
