So, to start off this entry I should explain that I have never been the most "in shape" person. Back in February Drew and I wanted to get out of the apartment and do something outdoorsy. We actually had a weekend with good weather and no snow. So we head over to Pinnacle Mountain. It is a small mountain with trails ranging from easy to difficult. We picked a side and the hike was 1 1/2 miles. I couldn't even make it half way. I was so upset that I couldn't do it. I even turned on the water works and felt so sorry for myself. How could I be 30 and not even do a hike with my husband? I was devastated. After this defeat, I tried to do the couch to 5k program...unsuccessfully. I made it to week 4 and just decided to continue at my own pace of walking/jogging 3-4 days a week. I greatly improved my heart rate and April we braved Pinnacle again. Here are some pictures of my victory.
It was so cool to accomplish something that I thought I couldn't do!!

Wow! I just realized I haven't posted anything since February!! I thought I was going to be good at this whole blog thing...maybe not. So much has happened since then. Drew and I have since moved from Little Rock to Corpus Christi and from Corpus to Albuquerque (which I am absolutely in love with!) I will probably add a few entries to sum up the things we have done. From February to May we were pretty boring. I got a job while in Little Rock and we didn't do too much. (I will post an entry about Pinnacle Mountain...) The summer flew by with family visiting Corpus, a vacay to Cancun and moving out to Albuquerque. I also just got back from a trip to GA for 2 weeks! It was awesome! Now that I'm sitting here typing, I can't wait to post more entries about our mini adventures over the past few months!
