I went and saw my doc today and they took my BP at 122/80 that's better than it's been in years. The first milestone is 50# which I hope to hit this summer
Awesome! Great job joining a run like that. I've found that registering for events makes it easier to get motivated to train because there is a deadline. What I would caution, though, is to schedule an even harder one down the calendar. It's very easy to hit that event, and then when it's done rest and lose your gains. But nice work! Keep us posted on the run!
