One great day of things going well....

First, I ran 4 miles with Josh today in a little colder weather compared to Thursday. I dressed a little bit warmer and did very well. I had to make sure Josh was pacing me instead of running ahead of me since he still has his 20 mile attempt tomorrow.

Second, remember these shorts from a previous post?

Well, I can FINALLY fit into them perfectly.

It feels SO damn good. I lost another 1.6 lbs on WW and feel great. 13 lbs to go! I even can fit into my "skinny" work pants again after 2 months. Whoohoo!

Lastly, I receive a semi-promotion this week at work. I will be one of the MEB Baton Master Instructors who will shape new officers' minds as they learn to use one. I will receiving official training on October 4th and teaching my first class on October 16th.

4 mile run
10:06/mile pace - Great pace considering I added one more mile to my usual run!

Mile 1 - 10:09
Mile 2 - 10:07
Mile 3 - 9:53
Mile 4 - 10:16

You were awesome out there yesterday!

And thanks for walking back from Wicker Park with me, thus ensuring we had burned enough fat to be able to eat dinner last night.

And you now look really great in shorts!

Congrats on your promotion and fitting into the shorts!

Nice job on the run and weight loss! I've never measured success by the clothes I could fit into, just how much I could tighten my belt :-)

If you are getting a baton, remind to NEVER come around you without a helmet :-)

Congrats on a fit back into the shorts. I need to do something...I'm staying at my weight which is still 8 pounds or so above where I'd like to be...

And fun, nothing like getting to teach people how t beat up others...OK, so that's not the idea, but it looks fun to say yeah, I get to teach others to beat up people...:)
