Strappin' on my runnin' shoes
Tonight I went on my first run after about a 10 month hiatus. I have been craving to hit the pavement since about my 7th month of pregnancy, and tonight, I was finally able to get all the timing right with the kiddos and head out. It was so great, everything I wanted it to be. I even did way better than I thought I would. I just did a little 2 miler, but I was surprised that I was able to run the whole thing. It was fun to be back on the river trail, and to see all the improvements and changes that people had made in their back yards and to their houses since the last time I was out there. It was also funny to remember things about myself as a runner, like I totally forgot how much I spit when running. I am kind of a chronic spitter anyway (anytime I am around water, doing dishes, washing hands, etc), but it is even more so when running. I think I nailed Whit and Jill a few times during our training, aahh, memories! It feels great to be back out there again, and I can't wait to start getting back in shape!!
