Ready To Run!

Looking through all of my drafted posts the majority of them are all about getting in shape and running. I am seeing a pattern here and I don't like it. I am committing myself to a race at the end of January and I will be finishing that 1.86 miles!

Mckinley and I took advantage of a beautiful fall day last week and gave our running stroller a mile on her log. We went around our little neighborhood and ended up at the park down the street from our house. We are very lucky because our neighborhood is sandwiched between 2 parks with 2 great walking paths and we will definitely be taking advantage of them.

I finally got up and out today while Mckinley napped and Brent cleaned out the old dresser so we could put in our newly redone by yours truly (pictures coming soon) and he told me to get out and go while I could (I love my man) and get out I did! I set out from my house and ran to the park across the street, ran the trail, and then came back home. I am pretty darn proud of myself because I haven't run since before I got pregnant and it wasn't too bad! I told myself I would run a full mile without stopping and was pleasantly surprised when I got home to log my run on Map My Run and realized I had almost run 2 miles!! Now that may not seem like a lot, but if you have ever started all over again after taking a long time off of running you know how it feels.

I am happy and I am ready! My legs are aching in a good way today and it feels SO good!
