Yesterday I ran (more like walked) a 5K race in Alexandria. It was purely for entertainment purposes — there wasn’t even a giant stopwatch to tell you what your time was. It was all about the FUN!
It was the Color Me Rad race, the one where you are covered in colored cornstarch from head to toe and experience “the art of running” — well sort of!
I had registered for it two months ago thinking I would start running, but the weeks went by and NADA. I have lost about 12 lbs on Medifast, but you need to exercise as well, and I’ve been severely lacking in that department.

Sunday morning I woke up and that was the first time I had walked more than 2 blocks since I was about 6 months pregnant. However, because I am a runner my legs knew what they were doing but physically I was out of breath and I wasn’t well hydrated and…well you get it! I’m a little sore today, but not terrible.
