Fun Run

We had our Fun Run today. I ran an amazing 34 laps--Word. And I seriously RAN, too. I had like 7 sports bras on (and a few kids STILL got hurt), but I did it. My students were great, too. Any time I even thought about slowing down, they were right on my ass. It was funny. And once I realized that--holy crap--I could actually HIT my original goal of 30, I started speeding up. It was awesome. Once I hit 30, I almost hit the wall, but I figured hey, let's see how many more I can bust out. (Not TOO many, as it turns out, but I kept going.) Considering I was in the ER on Sunday night, I think I did pretty well.

I'm already stiffening up beyond belief and I'm exhausted, but I have to say, running actually felt kind of good. Is there a new hobby coming on?....(that's probably just the Crazy talking, but we'll see.)

Oh--and I was down 3 lbs this week for Biggest Loser. Oh yeah! New and Improved Jen is on the way!

(PS--I DO need to reset that damn smoking counter again....but I'll keep trying.)
