If so, (I hope you are!) find out how you can win an Ironman Watch from Timex Sports by sharing your reasons for running.

Since I am thirty years old, it is time to face the facts and admit that I am an emotional eater. This week was rough for me, emotionally and I have had a lot of ‘other’ things on my mind. I know I gained this week because my eating, once again, got a little out of control and I did not pay as much attention as I need to – including not keeping accurate record of my points, going over on my daily points and forgetting to drink water throughout the day. I was going to let this week’s gain ruin my day, but I am changing my attitude RIGHT NOW. It’s National Running Day and I plan to celebrate. And once again, this week is another opportunity to get back on track and make healthy habits!

Until the next mile marker,
