Family pride

We completed another 6 miles this morning!

I was really sore when I woke up, most likely from the past two days of working hard on the treadmill 🙂 But I managed to get myself going and pound out the 6 miles (walking, of course).

I am just so unbelieveably proud of my mom and two aunts for making this commitment for their health and for fun. I emailed them earlier in the week that perhaps we could make this a family tradition. Everyone in our family can run or walk the mini marathon every year if they are able 🙂

Our family is full of health problems, most of them stemming from obesity but I am hopeful that starting with the four of us, we can turn this thing around. Today’s walk just solidified the pride I have been feeling this week.

We can do it!

Hope you all are having a good Saturday. I had another Green Monster this morning, which wasn’t as good, but I think its because the banana I used wasn’t very ripe that I prefer them to be. I’m thinking about trying a different fruit next time just to see what its like. But I love that I got over a cup of spinach in with breakfast!

Oops, gotta run, catch up with you all later!
