Main Street Mile

Well, if you have been around me or talked to me recently you would know that I have completely changed my life around since moving back to Boise, and in more ways than one. One of those ways has been taking charge and getting fit and healthy again. I typically work out 6 days a week and am watching the pounds melt off and the muscles grow. I have also never felt better and LOVE being active again. Anyways, I have set several goals for my journey. The first of these goals to run 1 mile without walking. I set the date for last night which was the Main Street Mile in downtown Boise. The Main Street Mile is a 1 mile charity race for Mens Prostate Health. My family joined my Dad and the J105 team and my race day was set. Chad has been working me hard the last month or so, running a mile to half mile after each workout. I had never ran the entire mile, I usually would have to slow and walk part of it. But, I felt more than prepared for the race and was determined to complete the mile and my first goal.

Well, I am happy to say that I DID IT!!!!!!! I may have been the last person to finish in my heat (only b/c a few nameless people cheated!) but I never once slowed down and I never once gave up. I gave it my all and came across the finish line a winner in my eyes. Now on to the next goal.....

Yesterday, my friend Charity invited me and our friend Logan to join her family in a rafting trip with Brother Swinkles from her family's ward. We rafted the Payette River from Banks to Beehive Bend. It is about a 7 mile stretch and is rated a Class III. It is an easy stretch of the river, but most of Charity's family has not been rafting before so it was a great place to get them out and introduce them to rafting. It was a perfect day out on the river, gorgeous blue skies and SUN! We all had so much fun, even though we are a little sunburned today, and can't wait to go again! Thank you so much Charity for inviting Logan and I along with you and your family!
