Now it is the theme from "Rocky"

Did it.  Finished my official walking 5K.  So glad my friends encouraged me.  Especially Ruth, who slowed way down to walk it with me.  I had one goal.  The race began at 4 p.m. and I wanted to be done by dark.  Met my goal!  And I am wearing my very nicely designed long sleeve T-shirt as I type.

Stopped hearing the theme from "Jaws" and now I am hearing the theme from "Rocky".  You know, where he runs up all those steps.  Gonna fly now!

It feels good to finish with a group, instead of just walking for the "fun" of it.  By this time next year, I am visualizing myself wearing a single, instead of double-digit size.  Yes, I can see it!

I hear "Jaws" music

I did it!  Signed up for a 5K.  An official one with an entry blank and T-shirt and everything.
Can't say it was on my bucket list.  Can't even say it was on my radar, before this weight loss, cholesterol-lowering journey.

But, until it is done, the ominous music from "Jaws" keeps playing in my head.  After this, I can no longer describe myself as a couch potato.  I can't even accurately describe myself as a "fat lady".  But, the overweight lady sings just does not have the same ring to it.
