Late April of 2011 I began my fitness journey. I will never forget the months leading up to this date as I manifested and envisioned myself finally sticking to a fitness routine. My goal was to run 3 miles a day. I embarked on my first run early one late April morning and of course could not even make it a half of a mile without stopping to walk. I did my 3 miles though and I stayed true to my word. In only 5 weeks I could run the 3 miles without stopping at a ten minute pace, and could see my body transforming. This was the first time I experienced a "runners high" and from that point on I considered myself a "cardio addict". The intense euphoria and quick changes I saw in my body made me a fiend for this new found drug.
