I finally decided took time and write a recap from my second 5k this year after starting running again. I was so ready for the race. I was so excited and my mind was focus in the race but my heart was and still is with my family and all the people in Puerto Rico 🇵🇷. The adrenaline I had been on high and I couldn’t sleep well the night before. I wakeup early to have plenty time to eat breakfast, and dress up and be ready on time to drive to the area and find parking something that was so fast and easy. I got there thinking that I was going to have anxiety to see to many people but that wasn’t the case Thanks God! I was so prepare and determinate to give the best of me in this event.
This race was a mission accomplished with a -4 minute difference from my previous 5k. It was not a personal record but for me it’s a personal best because I ran it without stopping. Oh yeah that was the goal running non-stopping. I had trained for endurance and it was definitely worth it. I was very focused on my goal the entire time. I enjoyed it from start to finish…

F 30-34: 59th of 91

It took me sometime to set my goals for this month.
I’m few weeks away from my second 5k event this year.

Today I went for a run in the evening with my baby and the stroller. The weather was nice. I ran just 2.00mi but it felt good to run. I need it so bad today. I enjoy this time my me time. Is a little harder when you push the stroller but it was amazing. I felt so greatful to have the oportunity to run around and have my baby by my side.

This month was amazing I conquer a personal best not PR but PB. This month I achieve my farthest run since I started running again this year 2017 and also the longest distance non-stopping. The baby steps, consistency and training are giving me results. I’m so happy and proud of my accomplishment.
Today’s run is my farthest since I started running again on March. I set a goal and I went for it. The mind is powerful. I ran 3.22mi Every effort I had made to reach my goal has giving me great results. It has been worth it.
I cry happy tears…
This feeling that you have achieve something after training for it for so long, It’s Amazing!!
This week had been a little busy, crazy and a lot going on…which is good! I still doing my runs in the days I can. On Friday I needed to run, I had one of those days that I need me time, clear my mind, and just be relaxed. My method is RUNNING! On Friday it didn’t happen. So on Saturday I woke up, put on my running clothes and when for a run. In this run a lot happen. I was very committed to run non-stopping and I was focus. You know the mind is powerful. I ran 1.70mi non-stopping which It never happen before and I have been running short distance since 2013. I stopped for a while and this year 2017 I started again at it. This happen because I was determined that this was the goal, this is what I want. So Is happening! I completed a 2.75mi. run. It felt and still feels good that I achieve this. This is just the beginning, I’m going for more!!!
Today is one of those days that anxiety give me a hard time in so many levels. So I decided to go for a run. It was a struggle getting ready. It was should I go or not. I finally got ready and when for the run with my baby and the stroller. I ran in a slow pace than normal but I ran almost non stopping wish is my goal. I stop two-time in 1.66mi. In the middle on the run I check my progress on the app I use and it was pause. I was like damn I’m in 1.05mi already what the heck. The app stop in 0.51mi. What I did… I just keep running. My mind was set and nothing can stop me. Todays goal was a recovery run 1.25mi. Which I did and a little more. The mind is powerful. Never let anything or anybody stop you for what you want. Today was a hard day but I started it with the run. Some rocks during the day but It not gonna end bad. because the mind is powerful. I just want to attract positive vibes. Remove all the bad and turn the page. What is in the past, stay in the past. Live the present and enjoy it.
Today I also decided to watch a running documentary on netflix: From fat to the finish line. It was so inspiring I was almost ready to go for a run. I didn’t so tomorrow that’s the plan. I 100% Recommend it. If you are struggling with loosing weight like I am. Watch it. It feel like impossible is possible. Like a light in the end of the tunnel. It make me think if they can, I CAN. JUST KEEP RUNNING C.P.
I also want to take advantage of this post and write THANKS for all the new followers. I never thought in a million year I would reach 200 and counting. Is amazing THANKS again!
