Half Marathon!

The switch to the Weight Watchers Flex plan (and more good carbohydrates) continues to pay off. I switched on 6 Mar. I've lost 10.8 lbs in the 5 weeks since, and have crossed the 125 lbs gone mark. On 15 April I also ran my first half-marathon. The Horsetooth Half Marathon was 13.1 miles of hills, self-exploration, and fun. And I finished quite a bit faster than I predicted at 2:31:56 (11:36 min/mile). It's cool when you meet your "pie in the sky scenario" goal for a race. I still find myself in awe that am able to run that far. Here is another of my wife's scrapbook pages.
