Signed up for a 5k earlier in the year to make myself do it. Did it, now getting ready for a 4-mile run on the 4th of July! Trying to run/walk at least 10 miles a week (including at least one 4-mile run/walk a week), as well as doing a full-body kettlebell workout one or two times a week. Kettlebells are super fun and I love how you get a whole body workout in under an hour. Haven't lost a ton of weight yet, but each week my run time improves and I am feeling great!
Obviously, I'm not trying to win the approval of people, but of God. If pleasing people were my goal, I would not be Christ's servant. Galatians 1:10
