8 mile

The finale of The Biggest Loser was last night, and if you're a weight-loss t.v. freak like me, you know by now that Ali won. Finally, a woman takes the prize! It's about freakin' time.

Normally I get on the treadmill halfway through the show and watch until the end. Since it was the finale, I thought I might try a little longer, so I started my workout just 30 minutes into the show. I stayed on that treadmill for 90 minutes, and jogged 8 miles. I only walked for 5 minutes as a warm-up, and then 5 more minutes about halfway through.

How wonderful it was to be dripping with sweat, exhilirated from an ass-kicking run, and crying happy tears because Ali won TBL! Yup, that's right. I was running 6 mph on that treadmill and crying at the same time. I'm sure I looked like a complete fool, but at least it was in the privacy of my own home and not a gym.

Go Ali go!!! Woot Woot!
