One day while driving along with the kiddos, we passed two women running together on the sidewalk. Evelyn was all excited and yelled, "Look mommy, cool runner girls like you!!" :)

Every Monday Brings a Fresh Start

Not much to say except for I have been in quite the funk lately... haven't been able to make lemonade from lemons, look on the bright side, find the silver lining in the clouds... whatever you want to call it, for some reason I haven't been able to shake it. Good thing I didn't register in advance for the 10K -- I was too busy having a pity party to actually go and run the race :(

I think it was the combination of work frustration... being sick for what seems like 2 weeks straight... having some lingering ankle pain... which all affected my running/work-out routines.

Good news -- I ran close to 8 miles last night (my punishment for not running the race in the AM) with minimal ankle issues... and I also woke up with only a hint of sinus congestion this morning -- I think I have finally turned the corner!! Hooray for Monday -- a fresh start again :)

To end with some more good stuff -- here are some tub pics:

Sounds like things are turning around for the better! And an 8 mile run is nothing to laugh at...great job.

What great tub pics!

Cute kids!

I'm sorry to hear you've been feeling down. I am glad that you are starting to get out of it.

8 miles? That's awesome!

We had a bug go through our house that took three weeks to kick. It was chest congestion, and it kicked my butt. It makes it impossible to want to work out when you feel like that.

Nice job on 8 miles! That's great when you're just coming off a bug!

Are you still thinking about a 1/2 marathon this summer? I'm running (hoping/training anyways) a 10K on May 8th..and hoping to do the Detroit 1/2 this fall. The furthest I've ever run is 6 miles though. 13 seems soooooo far!
