Mustache Dache! aka MY 1st 5K!!!

...ok so apparently I started this blog a while back. My first (and only) 5k was completed on November 29th 2014. It was a chilly morning and this course was not easy on someone who had done absolutely no training except one walk that was about a mile in length. Anita, my love, and I walked the entire thing in 1 hour 5 minutes. I jogged maybe an 8th of a mile on a down hill at one point. 
I will say the best feeling was the end...crossing the finish line and getting my first medal. 
Obviously based on the 2nd sentence I haven't done anymore of these or anything else to get healthy and in shape.
Gosh I wish I had! November is coming up again and I can't believe a whole year has almost past already. 

I think for me, the saddest part is now the medal is hanging on the wall with a size 8 pair of jeans that I bought as a goal from a second hand store well over 2 years ago. I'm still wearing size 20 lane bryant.... :(
Here's, not hoping, CHOOSING, that better choices are on the horizon!
