Happy Run (One) Year Anniversary!!

It has been one extraordinary year since I started Running Without a Watch.  It all began because I desperately needed to find an easier way to exercise each day and to eat healthier without driving myself and my family crazy.  Jackpot, baby!

When I first started I was 172.0lbs and my goal was to drop to 160.0.  I reached this goal weight at the end of October and have never looked back.  When I weighed myself two days ago, the scale said 160.0.  What more can I ask for?  I just got finished my best running month ever, logging 100.7 miles in August.  Five out of the past six months, I have run 20 days or more for the month.  The one month I missed was when our baby was born.

I have become more relaxed with my food, keeping it very simple.  I measure out portions and eat tons of fruits and vegetables.  I still have my moments, but they are more the exception than the rule. 

I am looking forward towards my second year.  I hope to continue to maintain my weight, experiment with new foods, make new recipes and run a half marathon in March.

Congratulations to all of us who are striving to be our very best!
