I recently talked a few friends and coworkers into doing a 5K for fun... my first 5K ever. It wasn't a timed event so we weren't under pressure to do anything except finish. We all finished within an hour... so we were stoked! We had a blast! We couldn't have asked for nicer weather. We've all committed to do it again next year.
I did overeat during Thanksgiving; even though I had hoped to have more will power, I did not. I suppose "hoping" isn't enough! Still trying to master that dang hula-hoop... but not yet ready to give it up!
