Progress for week 1 of the Get Up And Go campaign with Staples for American Heart Month.
I have successfully run 1.25 miles! Now, I realize that this may not be a lot for some people, but I have not run a single mile since my Freshman year of high school. Embarrassingly enough, it still took a whole lot out of me to even get to that 1 mile marker. Thankfully my sister, who went running with me and runs a few miles almost daily herself, kept me motivated to hit that marker and work to go a little further. I have been loving the little tech gadgets that Staples sent me to aid me to #GetOutAndGo this month. I have been especially obsessed with my Fitbit for the all day everyday. Now while I can't be running 24/7, I love seeing the steps tick up on my Fitbit, encouraging me to take that extra long walk to lunch or to make that extra trip around the block to get some fresh air. Last week, I took over 59,000 steps and I'm sure I stepped more because I could see my progress whenever I wanted. I can't wait to see if I can beat my record, both in steps and in running next week!
