It was the Best of Times, it was the Worst of Times: Saying Goodbye to the First Passport I held on to for the Whole Ten Years of Validity

Well I did it. I successfully held on to this passport for the whole ten years that it was valid for. I know, I know I'm finally growing up. *snif snif*

Until next time!

My First Pair Of Running Shoes

Today was monumental. Oh, and why you ask? Well because I got my very first pair of running shoes, that's right running shoes.

I also found out that I've been buying tennis shoes that are half a size too big for me (because I have wide feet).

If you're in Salt Lake and in need of running shoes go to the Salt Lake Running Company, they are so nice and will make sure you get the right shoes. Thank you Jerry at the SLRC, you were wonderful!

Until next time!

My Very First 5K!

Photo from my Instagram (@thelizdiaries)
On Saturday I completed my very first 5k race. 

This guy right here (Jason, my boss) stuck with me the entire time. My heart sank when I came upon the first hill in the race. I had not been training for any hills and I don't know why it hadn't occurred to me that I should, so when I stopped to walk up that hill I told Jason he should keep running without me. He is, after all, a seasoned runner who does marathons and Iron Man races, but he said no because he got me into this mess. He stayed just a little ahead of me and stopped when I needed to stop and kept motivating me and telling me stories about running during the whole race. :) 

I didn't run the whole thing, but I did my best and ran as much as I could and I completed it. I believe I finished at about 48 minutes, but hey for a person that has never done running in her life I'd say that's pretty good especially considering there were hills

I'm starting to believe I can do ANYTHING.

Until next time!
