Day 5

These shoes have taken me far in the past couple of months and I am proud to showcase them today. Before I had my first child six and a half years ago, I was an avid runner. I ran and I loved it, for the way I felt, the way I looked, and the competitive drive it gave me. Before my dad passed away 3 years ago, I had picked my love for running back up and was planning on running my first 5k. He passed away and all of that went out the window (he was one of my biggest supporters, it was the hardest thing that I have ever gone through.) But I am back. I have been working on walking/jogging everyday for the past 6 weeks and today I am proud to say these shoes and I clocked 3.7 miles! YES! So excited to be getting my health and my drive back!
