Twenty twenty twenty four hours ago..

The dailymile amuses me to no end. I love how it keeps track of lifetime stats in a fun way. You know all those horrible statistics about how we all spend weeks of each year waiting in lines and stuck in traffic? I have just spent an entire day of this year doing something for myself that I love-running.

How awesome is that? I'm hoping to spend at least three full days running this year;)

Just ran my first 5K post-baby and in two years. Race report to follow after the full results hit the internet.

A Week Full of X's

The first week of official 10K training and I'm quite proud. Despite being on the mend from a nasty cold, busy at work, and catching up on laundry from being out of town along with the normal wife and mom duties, I was able to complete all the prescribed workouts on my printed sheet. Yippie!

Triple Digets!

Just a quick line to celebrate a small success. My year-to-date mileage has just gone over 100. Yippee!

The Good and The Bad

It has been quite the past few days. Friday my Grandma passed away, Sunday a set of dear friends got married, and today (Monday) another set of dear friends are about to welcome their baby girl. I've been grateful to participate in such happy life affirming days, even more appreciative of what really matters in this world.

It's been a wave of emotions and reflection. The runs I've gotten in the past week have definitely helped me work through off some of the nervous energy and clear my head.
