First of all: Welcome new readers. I have been reading a lot of great new blogs lately; if I haven’t been by speak up and say hello!
Running Update: So…as you know if you read this post, I got the go ahead to start running again! Up until last night I was doing my walk/jogging on the treadmill but last night I took it to the pavement! The last time I did anything outside was the 1/2 marathon in February; the weather has been so nice, it was great to finally be out in the sunshine 🙂 I did 2 miles in a little under 13:00; that is on one hand really tough to swallow because I do not like going that slow, but on the other hand I am so excited to be moving again! When I remember that seven weeks ago I was on crutches, I am amazed at how far I have come in such a short time!
PiF Update: Given that I went 8 weeks without running and have to slowly work my miles back up, I do not think I can stick my original goal of 650 miles for the year. Therefore, to be more realistic with myself, I am going to set a new goal of 550 miles.
I have still been diligently donating to my PiF jar for my biking miles and I am looking forward to donating my running miles again. And of course, my jar got a nice addition when you all donated your miles and my AWESOME friend Brian matched the total. That was almost $25 total 🙂
- Boston runners…I am looking for your bib numbers! Some of us want to stalk follow you on race day and I am compiling a list!
- If you have a spare two minutes, go here and sign the petition to take the freeze off of Russian adoptions. Need more info? See my post from yesterday.
And one last thing…I want to wish my parents a Happy Anniversary! They have been married 33 years today 🙂 Here they are on their wedding day, 1977!
Well, that is about it for today bloggies- hope you are having a great Friday!
