Let The Record Show...

...that I jogged an entire one mile without stopping on the treadmill yesterday in 16 minutes.


I went to the gym and thought to myself, "I wonder if I can jog a mile yet?" So, I decided to go ahead and try.

And I made it jogging the entire one mile. Now, I can probably walk that mile just as fast, but I didn't walk it this time...I jogged it.

After that mile I had to slow down the pace to a slower-than-normal walking speed for me, but I stayed on there another 10 minutes walking and then called it a day.

You have no idea how excited I was am about that mile. My good friend Stephanie asked me when I called to tell her about it, "When was the last time you jogged a mile?"

Um...in high school, about 18 or more years ago, when they tested us on the one-mile run/walk for a grade in P.E. Except then I always ran/walked it, because I couldn't do the whole thing running.

So, at 33 years old and still over 200 pounds, I'm very happy that I was able to lift my load up and jog for a mile.

This is only the beginning folks. Have a great day! :)


  1. You are awesome! Way to go on getting in that mile!

  2. That is so great! I love to run outside and struggle with the treadmill downstairs in my house. I recently over came that fear and now run on the treadmill. I learned that it was easier to run on a little incline than on a straight surface for what ever reason.

    You did so great, keep up the great work!

  3. Those "I wonder if" questions lead to good things! Congrats!
