Hello all!

I've toyed around with the idea of starting a blog for a while now. So here it is. It's a work in progress and you will see it change a bit as I play with the backgrounds and layouts and such.

Back story: Inspector Gadget(my husband) and I(GI Jane) are both enlisted in the Army National Guard. We live outside Chicago with our dog and cat. He's been in for almost 9 years and works on the civilian side as a contractor working on computers. I work full time for our national guard unit until Oct. In Oct I will begin my new position as a counter drug intelligence analyst. I'm in the process of extending for another 3 years(I hit 6 years in Jan 2011).

After a brutal knee injury resulting in surgery and physical therapy, I've decided to train for a 5K. This story will have a lot of updates of my progress in the Couch to 5K program(C25K) and my weight loss journey using Weight Watchers.

I hope this blog will give me a way to channel my thoughts, share my experiences, and mostly, keep me in check with the progress I have made! My first 5K will be the "Run for the athletes" in Aurora, IL. The Aurora PD put together this event to raise money to fund the Illinois Special Olympics. Both things are near and dear to my heart and I can't wait to run in it!

Anyway, I think that's enough rambling!
