50 states, bucket list


Totally excited. So I think I have an uber fun goal that can change a little (with same principle) as I get older, but the hubby and I have made a goal of running a 5K in every state. 50 states, 50 5Ks. Sounds like fun to me. I figure it could be a 10K and count, or whatever, but as long as it is at least an organized 5K with a t-shirt for proof, it counts.

He was on board, and I'm so excited. It could be that we are 60 years old before we can afford to make it to Hawaii, and I'm in no hurry to go back to Alaska it was so darn cold (we'll have to try to go during the summer). But I think this is going to be so much fun. He's got a lot of training to do to catch up. He's naturally thin (stupid men), but he's definitely not in shape, so he'll have to work on it. I think he could run faster, but not that far.

As much fun as this sounds, I'm really dreading the gym tonight. Bla. I'll go though. Because that is what a good little girl should do. I weighed in at 190.1 last night. I half expect to see that number go up tonight. I have had really large suppers the last couple nights sending my calories way over, and you cannot maintain a loss at that rate. My goal for today is to keep my calories in check! I want so badly to get back to 189.0, that is my 50 lb loss spot. So close, yet so far.

VERY COOL.
A friend of mine did the 50 by 50 merely visiting the states---I love your idea.

(and giggled at the naturally thin comment. ahhh men)
