Well, a running buddy anyway! We dropped our boys off at school this morning and then we both went for a run in the park! It was GREAT! Susie really enjoyed her time in the baby jogger - that made it even better! The weather was PERFECT - a chilly 56 degrees! I am really REALLY starting to get excited about the fall! I even came home today and started a pork roast - that just SCREAMS autumn to me! HAHA!
We only did 3 miles today and WOW have I lost my running base. I'll just have to get it back! We ran 2 miles straight, walked for a half mile, and ran the last half mile. I'm not sure if it was ALL because of my running lapse - I think pushing that jogger added a whole new dimension! It's nice to have a buddy - and the best part is, we are about the same fitness level! I was always afraid of getting a buddy and slowing them down! I'm really looking forward to running with her!
Colin's first day of school was awesome! He asked me if he could go back after dinner. I said "how about after breakfast tomorrow?" He agreed to that. HA! I'm glad he is so excited! I wonder what grade that excitement starts to wear off?
I went to my first PTA meeting tonight. It was interesting - I'm not a big joiner though so I don't know. It was fun to hear about all the fundraising they do. They don't do those traditional "buy something from my kid" fundraisers. They do all sorts of different things - one of which is a jog a thon! I LOVE LOVE LOVE that idea! The kids get people to sponsor them per lap they do around the track. Colin is going to go nuts when he hears about that! I really like his school - it feels very family oriented. I love that!
Well, I'm off - I'm still having issues with these meds. They make me VERY tired and I have gained a few pounds since starting them. I'm hoping by picking back up with running I can combat the weight gain. Seriously though - it is like HEAVEN to be rid of those pains! They were getting REALLY bad!!!
Have a WONDERFUL night! Thanks for reading!! -Monica
