5K – 3/3 – The Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans LLC


I can’t wait for this week’s race reports! I know a lot of you were out there giving it your all! We want to hear all of the knitty-gritty details! Leave nothing out! Come back, link up to your post down below, and let us be inspired!

It’s Tuesday! Time to read those beloved race reports! Link up below. Be inspired.

It’s hard to fight an enemy who has outposts in your head.  ~Sally Kempton, Esquire, 1970 “You think too much.” That’s what I heard from my husband last night while I was talking to him about my fitness woes.  I was telling him that I have all these lofty fitness goals but I condemn myself […]

Seriously, if you would have asked me a year ago what I was going to do on Thanksgiving Day 2009, my plans would not have included getting up at 6:30am to run a 5k even though it was only 49 degrees outside after being diagnosed with a sinus infection less than 24 hours before. But […]

One year ago I weighed 157 pounds. My daughter had just turned 1, and I realized I needed to restart my weight loss journey before I had a reply of what happened after my son was born. You see, when I got pregnant with my son (who is 6 now) I was already overweight. After […]

Today, instead of True Confessions, we’re going to talk about how our 5K’s went this weekend!!  Right now, as you’re reading this, I’m probably headed back home to Virginia!  But on Saturday, I ran my Sisterhood Virtual EA SPORTS Active 5K with Christy and Amanda! Christy plotted our course well in advance.  It was a […]

So how goes the EA Sports Active 5K training? Are you training? You are training, right? Because the run is in 10 days. Of course you’re training, and you’re totally ready to go!! Are you sitting there staring at your screen in disbelief, having not a clue as to what I’m speaking of? Well, go […]

We’re in the home stretch, folks! We’ve only got one more week in the Shrink For Good challenge.  Are you close to your goals? Go hop on the scale and let us know how you did!  Then show us your cans!  (I feel so naughty saying that…giggle!) Our latest exercise challenge started on Monday!  We […]

So, I’m training for this 5k. Again. I already completed one earlier this summer, but I wasn’t very satisfied with my time.  So I decided to sign up for another one. This weight loss/exercise thing is so hard (whine). Anyway, I’m training for a 5k on September 12th and I have found myself in a […]

I am reposting this from earlier in the year! I know there are a lot of you who are doing the Couch-to-5K program or who have previously done it, and we would love to hear from you!! If you are anything like me, then you try running for a few minutes, huff and puff, can’t […]

Well, maybe he isn’t exactly a BABY, but I will forever call the twins “my babies” and I think secretly they like it, despite the outwardly protests. Awhile back, I wrote about participating in races to benefit charities. This past weekend, I signed up to do a 5K for Sherry’s Wishes, a local organization in […]

I know we have tons of runners in the Sisterhood, and even more wanna-be runners (like myself!), and we are all capable of walking. There is no better motivation than participating in an event for a good cause! Everywhere you look, you can find 5Ks, 10Ks, half marathons, and even marathons and they are often […]
