I've decided to take a break from any adoption related posts. I recently started running. I say recently, but it has been on and off for almost 5 months. Its a love/hate relationship. One of my goals while Jason was deployed was to become a runner, so that we could run together. I was really into this kickboxing class and then several events happened that led to me not going to the gym and never becoming a runner. I was out of town several times. I got sick. I almost broke my foot. blah. blah. blah.

Jason used to be a bigger runner. I say used to because he now has stress fractures in both legs and before that he was having major hip problems. But, before he was too broken to run, he would run the loop by our house and I would walk Rudy. When we met up, we usually walked back together. The last few times we did this, I ran the rest of the way with him. That was the kickstart I needed to get going again. That was roughly October. Ever since then he's been on profile and can't run. But, I have kept it up.

I'm very sporadic. I have really good weeks and really terrible weeks. It helps that I have a couple of friends here who run and like to run with me! Michelle even convinced me to sign up for a 5K. Which we did a few weeks ago. But, since I'm sporadic, the week before the race, I realized that I hadn't run since before we left for Ethiopia. oops. I got in two or three runs before the big day. It was a miserable windy El Paso day...not ideal at all for my first race. But, we finished and we had fun.

I wish that I was better about running everyday. I'm not. In fact it has been 5 days since I last ran. Oh well...I do think I'm to the point where I can call myself a runner. Maybe I should go for a run right now...

  1. I am allergic to running..wink wink
    I always say, "the only way I'm running is if someone that wants to hurt me or my babies is chasing us" :)

    I love it that you ran a go girl!
