28. Up and Running

I am so excited to announce that we finely got a new card reader so I can post pictures again!

These are my AWESOME new running shoes that I love. They are the most expansive shoes I have ever purchased but they are worth every cent. Some of you know that I started running from scratch last December. I finished the program I was following in March when I ran a 5K. I took a break from running thinking I wanted to try some other type of workout but nothing stuck. When I decided I wanted to run again I knew I wouldn't be consistent unless I was doing it with someone. I convinced some great friend of mine to meet me a couple night a week so that we could chat and run.

It has been wonderful! the track we run is just short of a 5k and we do it at least 3 times a week. We have found a good pace and take turns pushing each other. This Saturday we are running a 5k together (except for Kristen, I hope you get better soon). We are doing another on October 9th and then a couple of us are working towards a 15k at the end of October. I have even had some crazy thoughts of a marathon in the spring.

It is so nice to have an outlet of women that I get to spend time with in the evenings while we work on bettering ourselves.

Also Steven is amazing I couldn't do it without him. I run out on him three nights a week after dinner leaving him to bathe the kids and put them to bed. He has never complained, so if anyone has even doubted the awesomeness of my husband, there is your proof!
