Congrats! What a huge accomplishment. It was your "guide to running" post a couple weeks back that finally pushed me to start the Couch to 5k program. You're an inspiration!

I finished my half marathon this morning! Not only did I survive, but I finished over a minute faster than I'd trained for. My goal was to finish in under three hours. My training pace would have me finishing in about 2:45, but I finished in 2:43:44, which is especially impressive when you factor in that it took me about three minutes just to get up to the start line once the horn blew, because it was so crammed with people and I didn't even have room to start running until I was a good 25 yards past the start line. So here's all the proof you've been waiting for:

Right before the start... it was only 35 degrees out, so I wore the jacket until the last possible second, then handed it off to my husband.

"Running" down the chute to the finish line. I was barely moving at this point....

Almost there....

Happy, despite being near death. Showing off my metal and the flowers my sister-in-law brought me.

At lunch with my husband and some friends after I survived the race. Wearing my race shirt and showing off my metal again.

Here's a link to a little video of the start and finish:

Outstanding Job, Congrads!

Fitness goals are a great way to stay motivated throughout the weight loss phase and in maintenance. For me, it's hard to just work out every day without a sense of purpose. Having a training program that I can stick to and feel like I'm actually making "progress" keeps me from getting bored or lazy.

Yay. I started running in December and doing a half later this year. I am running a 10.2 mile race in June just to get my bearings in for the half. So awesome! Love seeing us bari-athletes!

        Hello Joset, why haven't you been given a diet plan? Did you have your surgery in the UK? Every surgeon has a different diet, and no two people are on the same one. Weird I know. Contact your team if you can

        Mine was two weeks clear liquids

        Two weeks on soups, milk shakes and broths all with out lumps

        two weeks on pureed foods { I couldn't stomach this step }

        two weeks on soft foods like Protein yogurt, stewed mince and veg, soft scrambled eggs. Pate on hard crackers

        Then onto any food I fancied. If you struggle on any step or with any foods go back a step for a few days. Eggs, salmon and chicken are hard for beginners.

        Sorry I missed your original post, hope you are still on here.
