Let's get fit!

Since my diabetes diagnosis I've been paying more attention to my health.  Over Thanksgiving I got a treadmill.  The doctor says that cardio will really help with the diabetes.  I've been doing really well with the treadmill.  I'm seeing a huge increase in my energy and my numbers are starting to go down. Yay!  

With the treadmill I've started to enjoy running again.  This year I've decided it's the year of a fit me!  I've signed up for a few fun 5ks and my first one was yesterday.  My new super fast shoes and my cool hoodie.  Instead of a race t-shirt this 5k/10k gives you a hoodie!

The Seattle Hot Chocolate 5k.  Apparently this race is a big deal and there were thousands of people there!  Even though I had to get up early (hello! 6:45am start time!) I had a great time.  I was home and ready for a nap by 9:00 am.  The start line was a little crazy. While they had people in corrals it was still a slight mess.  It took me awhile to get around people who were walking.

The views though were amazing.  When else do you get to watch the sunrise from the streets of Seattle?  While it was chilly (32 at race time) it was a clear blue sky.  This picture made me love my city even more.

At the end you get a giant cup with fondue, dipping things and hot chocolate.  Oh don't think I didn't laugh at the irony of a diabetic running this race.  I did eat the banana and tried some of the hot chocolate. Very good!

I did head home and take a little nap.  Then J and I took the pups out for a walk along the marina.  Such a beautiful first day of March!  Can't wait for summer time.
