I saw an article recently about how work places are making work stations that are treadmills with built in work stations so employees can walk and work.. and I thought that is a great idea....I have been asking my husband for months to make the platform for my desk and unfortunately he has not had the time.
I have been feeling very frustrated with my working situation recently and today I thought if I could get moving I would feel better. I went to the garage and found a board and created my own work station and off I went.
I ended up walking 5 miles today in 90 miles while working and I even did intervals with inclines so I was doing hill walking too! Pretty awesome...
Immediately I noticed my mental attitude was much better, my work day went much faster and now I am not sitting at my desk all day and now have a way to keep on moving through my day :)
Cost of board for work station $5
Cost of feeling great after walking 5 miles while working priceless

Well although I planned to write this about my first duathalon, I will touch on that but instead I will share my news!! The duathalong was a lot of fun and I am glad I did it. The race had a few issues, and due to construction they had to change the course slightly and instead of a 12 mile ride they had to change to a 10 mile ride. So we ended up with a 1 mile run, 10 mile ride, and 3 mile run. This was a fun challenge, although hot, but I am glad I did it and next year may enter the triathalon.
But now for my news....WINNER!!!
I am so excited to say that I won an all expense paid trip to the Marine Corps Marathon in 24 days!!! My favorite shoe store of all time, DSW shoes, had a contest and I entered a video of why I wanted to run this race. Besides being an amazing opportunity to run in Nation's capital, I knew this was a perfect way to mark the day that I changed my life and started running as this is the 2nd anniversary of my starting to run. Today the email came that announced that I am one of the top 3 winners!!! So I now have 24 more days to be ready to run my second full marathon...
Today is a GREAT day!!
