New Challenge

Hey everyone! Just checking in...I'm back with the Shrinking Jeans now. I missed the start of their last challenge and didn't join. :( Then their next challenge needs a Wii, which I don't I was getting a little bummed. Now, they have another challenge that I CAN do. It's Shrink For Good. Every pound I lose, I buy a perishable food item to donate. So I'm helping our community while losing weight. I had some time off from running. I really like the Couch to 5K, but with everything going on, I missed so much. So I decided to start over again. Dave even went with me once. Oh, and the best part is, I scored a jogging stroller off Craigslist for $20!!!! Can't beat that! Dave and I also went to play tennis one evening. We're hoping to go again soon. So, hopefully, I can keep running in NY. We leave tomorrow for another trip. We're going to upstate New York to see some of Dave's family. The main thing that I think might stop me, will be that I won't know the neighborhood to run. We have a lot planned for the trip too. Friday we are going to go to Niagra Falls because I've never been there and then Karissa is going to leave the country for the first time and we're going to see the Yankees in Toronto. We'll be visiting family the rest of the weekend through next Wednesday. Next Wednesday, we leave and head to the city for another Yankees game. We'll stay in Jersey for the night and then head to PA on Thursday to visit my sister and her family for a few days. Busy, busy, busy. I'll hopefully check in while we're away, but I'm not sure exactly when...Have a great weekend!

Welcome back, glad you can join us for Shrink for Good!
I LOVE C25K. I'm up to running 28 straight minutes, which is crazy!
Have a great trip!
