Hello again

I can't believe that I have not posted since JUNE!  Oh well, here I am now.  A lot has happened to me in that time, some good, some bad, and running took a back seat for a while.  I just got home from running a 10K, in record time I might add, and thought I would write about it.

OK, if you know me very well, you know my "record time" is still quite "slow" by some standards, but at least I DID IT, and I feel good about it.  If you have ever thought about becoming a runner, but feel that running sucks, let me tell you...IT DOES!  But the way you feel when you are done is the good part.

Today I ran with some of my favorite running buddies, MY DAD, Roxanne, and Kathy.  I also met a new friend....lets just call her "D" until I have permission to tell you all who she is!  Ha!

How many people do you know that got out of bed today (Saturday) at 6am, just so they could run 10K? (6.2 miles, for those of you who keep wondering)  Well, I did.  And so did those I just mentioned. (And 9, 996 others)  That is one of my favorite things about "being a runner"...I get to do it with great friends, who encourage me every step of the way.  YOU CAN DO IT TOO!
