Run, Forrest, Run!!!!

If someone had told me 6 months ago that I could run 5 miles without stopping or dying, I wouldn't have believed them.

Today? I totally would...because I just did!!!

I'm doing another 5K this weekend for July 4th and this time both the kids are doing it too (well, the kids do a 1K). They're so excited, they have their bibs with their own numbers (just like mommy) and they think they are hot shit. I'm just really happy they are into something that is good for them and something we can do together.

Tomorrow I'm taking the final step and I'm registering for the Rock and Roll 1/2 Marathon in San Antonio. I'm so excited...and a little bit terrified, but I know I can do it. I still have 19 weeks to train and we're already at 5 miles, I'll be at 13.2 in no time.

That's so awesome, Allie! You're a running machine, woman. I'm proud of ya.

In the past, running has been wonder drug to me, so I know these feelings you're talking about here. Keep it up!

That is awesome. This heat is killing me. I managed about 2 miles before my head was pounding so hard, I quit. Bleh. Stupid Houston heat. Oh how I thee treadmills. And air conditioning.

Thanks Jen, I'm with you, running is addicting, it make you feel so good...and look good too.

Oh, I feel ya, Trish. We were running last night in the dark, we start around 7:30 pm usually but last night it was closer to 8 pm, it's too freaking hot to run any sooner than that. I tried running in the morning but since I have to be at work at 6:45 am that was not happening, besides it's too humid then anyway.
