First Outside Run

Our weather has been a little warmer and the sun has been out. So, I thought I'd go ahead and try jogging at the park today. I wore layers of clothes and a beanie to keep my ears warm. It's a good thing I dressed warmly, because I was reminded that 50 degrees is still cold.

It was very windy and I hadn't counted on that before deciding to go. I decided I had to do it just this once...I was itching to run outside. Thankfully the wind was blowing very strongly on the first half of the lap, but it was to my back the second half. That gave me something to look forward to as I pushed on in with the wind in my face.

I was a bit excited to jog outside. I made a little video at the end, but it was really long so I'll have to clip it and upload it to here later. In the meantime, here's a picture of me after my run.

Yea, I know I look goofy, but I don't really care... I jogged outside!! Oh, and I passed a woman who was walking almost as fast as I was jogging (yea..I was slow and you know the wind didn't help) and she told me I was doing great! I told her what I tell everyone..it all started with walking! We agreed that we'll both keep working at what exercises we're doing - little by little. :)


  1. Your face looks slimmer. I can see a difference.

    You're motivating me to get back out there with my c25k.

  2. wish we had 50 degrees here. I'm going running this evening (it will be 39 here). I usually get all bundled up and then wish I didn't have so many layers after 5 mintues of actually running lol.
    Keep going, your looking great!
