P to the R **

PR!! [Personal Record].

I ran 1 mile in 11 minuets 20 seconds. That is 3 minuets faster than my 1/2 marathon (and normal) pace.

I ran 3 miles last night. The first one I was going for a PR. I did 1 mile in 12:15. Although I beat my fastest time by 15 seconds, I really wanted under 12. So the last mile I ran hard, and felt like I was going to die.

Totally shocked at the time when I finished, 11:20. 55 seconds faster than mile 1. Wowsers! I couldn't believe it!

I didn't feel comfortable while doing it though. I just wanted to prove to myself that I could.

BOOYA Self! I beat your 1 mile PR Mrs. Curvy.

So happy.

We are off to Morgan Hill for a very quick trip. Davey has an interview with PG&E up north. We are still hoping and praying for Tennessee. This PG&E thing came really quick and randomly. He's going to follow through in case he doesn't get the job in Tennessee.

OH!! And!!! I started a challenge with my Strength and Beauty meetings. We haven't met in a while, so I invited all the ladies over and their husbands, and anyone that wants to compete we are doing a Biggest Loser challenge. It's 8 weeks, you pay $10, and the person at the end of 8 who has lost the highest % of body weight wins. So far we have 8 players. including two men. I'm super excited and motivated for this. F O C U S E D. Want to win. [Hehe]. Even if I do win I'll probably share the $ with 2nd place since this whole thing was my idea. But it's not about the $, it's about the motivation. We are all excited.

Love, The Curvy Housewife
