Time to crow about your best physical or fitness related accomplishment! Did you finally run an 8 minute mile? Whittled down your waistline to fit into a smaller sized gown? Come back from a tough injury? Play for a championship team?
Tell us all about it and we’ll celebrate with you!

I got down to a size 4 dress last year!

yay! Let’s celebrate our successes.
When I started working out in October I couldn’t run for more than 60 seconds without hanging onto the treadmill for dear life. Now I can run 20 minutes straight with no breaks! I’m hoping to build and build on it until I can do a 10k.

First I ran a mile without stopping to walk. Then I did that in 10 minutes. And then I did it in slightly less! If middle-school me could see me now she’d probably say, “Why are you doing that if you don’t have to?”

@Twista: Haha that reminds me of high school. I was one of the ones bringing up the rear on the mile.

@MissAsB: I rocked every other aspect of the Physical Fitness Test but I dreaded running that mile all year long!

wow! running 20 minutes and/or a mile without walking is amazing! i have not been able to do that since high school 🙁
But….i can do “regular” push ups now! it has been years since i could. but thanks to Jillian Michaels (level 2)! I am not sure how many i can do though; lets not stretch it. i am just impressed that i can do one!
My Fiance even said “wow good job bunny! you are getting really good at those”. hehe

Unfortunately for me now, I was in my peak in junior high/high school! I competed All Ontario (a high school level competition) for track and came in 4th place when I was only in junior high.
Now I can only dream!

In October I ran my first half marathon! I was so proud of myself for not stopping – I somehow ran all 13 miles! I’m excited to start training for another this year.

I ran my first marathon in November! It was the NYC marathon and the most exciting experience in my life. It was so incredibly empowering – I was smiling for the last 6 miles and cried as I crossed the finish line (happy tears!)

I used to always be envious of those girls I saw running on the treadmill or outside. I never i repeat NEVER ran at all or even worked out until this summer. I started slow with walking but have been increasing in speed and distance. I can run about 2 miles without stopping! Also, I have been so consistent in my working out. Since this summer I have worked out 4-6 times a week with the occasional slip up of course, but I think I’ve finally made working out a permanent part of my life.

You ladies are amazing! I’m not a runner…and DEFINITELY not a fast runner!
I hiked an active volcano in January! Volcan Pacaya in Guatemala has an elevation of over 8000 feet and it was a ROUGH hike. There are these little kids that follow you with horses and they charge tourists for rides when they get tired. When I started to take some rest breaks here and there, this one kid just started following me, certain that I would need to use his horse at some point. I made it to the top without the horse, and our guide rewarded us with marshmallows to toast on the lava!

I just started climbing a few weeks ago. It was like 2 weeks before I finished my first route then I finished 3 in row (1 one night, 2 the next). I felt pretty awesome about that since I haven’t really ever “worked out” or anything before apart from PE in high school and the occasional workouts here and there. It was saddening to see people who’ve never climbed before do the routes that were giving me trouble, but once I finished them I felt SO much better. My arms are looking pretty rockin right now too!
I <3 climbing 🙂

2 years ago I ran a half marathon and this summer I am doing my first triathalon. I can now swim 1/2 mile in 25 minutes, and I know I can bike 12 miles and run 3. I just have to figure out how to do all 3 consecutively. 🙂

I can do more than 15 boy pushups at a time.
