Message to my 100 Day Challenge Participants:  Just a reminder- We have 4 days until this challenge is OVER.  Part of the 100th post is sharing your successes over the past three months.  Please send me your updates, measurements, pictures, (whatever you want to share).  You can post them as a comment, Facebook them to me, or email them.  I need all the updates by Tuesday, June 7th @ 5pm MST.  I will share them all on Wednesday, June 8th.  I've already heard from 9 participants.  Can't wait to hear from the rest of you!  And remember to keep pushing these last couple days!

Ab workout- None, it's the weekend!

My Daily Update: Ran the Fight for Air 10K this morning.  Jake and I woke up at 5:40am and left around 6:20am.  My friends, Meighan and Emily met us at Highland High School and I boarded the bus with them while Jake stayed and waited for the 5K bus.  We made it up to Olympus Hills Mall around 7:15am and hit the porta-potties.  Around 7:35am we headed to the starting line and got to chatting.  All of a sudden the runners just took off, no countdown, gun, nothing.  Emily, our speedracer, took off and Meighan and I started out together.  I hadn't even turned on my iPod or my Garmin, which was really frustrating.  I shuffled along for a second waiting for my Garmin to locate the satellites and start timing but it was taking forever because I was moving.  I stopped running and waited on the side of the road for my Garmin to start.  I wasted over a minute in this process which was really annoying, but oh well.  Finally started my Garmin and I was on my way.  There was no pad to step on to activate the timing chip, which was strange.  Instead they just went by the time everyone started running which gave me a disadvantage since I didn't really start moving until over a minute after everyone took off.  The first mile of the race there was a headwind.  It almost blew my hat off and I had to hold it down a few times.  The hardest part of the race was just before the 3 mile marker, coming off the Parley's trail.  It was a pretty steep incline and my lungs and legs didn't love that, but I'm happy to say I ran the whole hill, and after that it was downhill or flat for the rest of the way.  Right at the 5K point (Tanner Park) I saw some runners getting off the 5K bus and Jake happened to be one of them.  Great timing.  He ran along side of me for a few seconds and we chatted for a minute, then I kept running and he headed to the bathroom.  At about 4 1/2 miles I saw a sign that said "Hip & Humble This Way.  GO JAMIE!"  It totally made me smile and gave me a little extra oomph.  As I ran the last 20 seconds toward the finish line, Emily was there cheering me on, telling everyone around her "That girl has one lung!  Her name is Jamie.  GO JAMIE!"  Emily got a bunch of strangers to clap for me and I actually got a little choked up.  It was awesome.  I found out later that Emily had made FIVE signs and posted them all along the course last night, but because I was so "in the zone", I only read the one and barely saw another.  I crossed the finish line and stopped my Garmin.  It said 6.02 miles at 59 minutes.  My official chip time said 1:02, but I'm saying 1:01 (maybe even under) because I didn't start with everyone.  Not too bad for my first post-surgery race.  Emily came in at 52:41, Meighan came in at 1:05, and we think Jake came in around 33 minutes for the 5K.  Our other Team Jamie members (Chandra, Matt, and Tim) did great, too, all getting under 30 minutes for the 5K.  You know, I'm proud of myself.  There were times when I was really sucking air and could feel how tired my legs were, but overall I was able to push myself and I actually did better than I thought I would.  Now it's time to get serious and start my training for the Hobble Creek Half Marathon in 2 1/2 months!  So excited!

My Comments to You:

Ash- Can't wait to see the pics... and yes, I'm posting them.  You look way better than me without clothes on so you should be proud, woman.  Show that hot bod of yours off.  How did you do on your goal of 3 under 30?

Bethany- I'm impressed you even wanted to try this, being nearly 40 weeks pregnant!  Out of my three pregnancies I only worked out during my second one, and only until about 7 months then stopped.  I can't imagine having four little ones to take care, being pg, and trying to move, and then trying to do this too.  Hopefully once life gets a little less crazy for you, you can try to commit to your own challenge, and I would be more than willing to support you along the way!

Emily- Can't wait to hear about your bike ride next weekend.  I'm sure you will do awesome!  The fact you are in better shape now than you have ever been makes me so happy.  The whole point of my challenge was to help others be healthier now than they were 3 months ago, and you have definitely done that, which makes me really proud.  Way to make being healthy a higher priority!

Oh my goodness, you look crazy skinny in your pictures. Also, your time is awesome, even if you had some issues in the beginning. Your friend was sweet for making all of those posters for you. That was really neat to see. Wish I could have been out there to run it with you. Although, running is totally a mental thing, and anything beyond 3 or 4 miles mentally gets me, so I'm sure you would kick my tush.

I sent my pictures and stats your way, but I am still really hesitant about the pictures being posted. I just don't want to offend anyone with my immodesty.
