2017 - The First Month

1 month into 2017.
I weighed myself.
I am as heavy as I was last April.
December was bad for me.
I am sure my diabetes numbers went up too.
I am not happy with it but it is what it is.

The good news is that while I might be heavier, I am still in much better physical shape and condition than I was in April 2016.
In the last week or so, I have done 2 5ks, 1 10k, and a 22k.
The 22k was with a light ruck.
The 10k was no ruck but at speed, took 2hr 6min to complete and only 1 blister on the side of my foot from new shoes I think.
Other than some minor stiffness, I was not incapaciated with DOMS or injury.

I signed up for Charity Challenge 1000 Mile event.
I am on pace to make over 700 but not on pace for the 1000 at this point.
I have multiple long events scheduled this year but definitely need to keep on top of this if I am going to make 1000 miles.

Bunch of new medals for my challenge bar.
1 more in the mail.
While the medals don't excite me for the bling itself, they do help give me a tangible and visible reference to the amount of work that I am putting in, even if I don't have the results I want.

I am really excited for an event I just created.
Dec 2 I am going to have a big party at a local hotel to celebrate my 30 years cancer free.
I have rented out the atrium poolside and have a room by it.
Food, beverage, and fun are my plan.
People can even get in on a group room plan if they want to stay fairly cheaply.
So far I have a few people saying they can go so I really hope more can join me.
