Go Blue Crew!



My official training for the 2008 Houston 1/2 Marathon starts tomorrow! I am really excited about it. The Blue Crew will take off in the morning at 6am for a easy 3 mile run. Did I just say an easy 3 miles? Oh, my. I am a little nervous because I haven't been at it like I had been a few months ago. Life just happens and some things take the back burner. Like my running. It always seems to be the mothers things that take a back burner...but that's for another post! HA

I have never been a runner. And what possessed me to start, I'll never know. But, I'm glad that I did because not only did I learn to be more disciplined I have also met some AWESOME friends. :) We always have coffee after our morning runs. Sometimes when we feel like we just can't run another mile we think of the cup of coffee waiting for us at the local coffee shop. But above all I feel better when I run. I feel healthier when I run. I feel like I can conquer the world when I run. My days are better when I run. I know now what that runners high is that everyone talks about. I used to roll my eyes (where no one could see me) but now I'm like....YES...I know that feeling. And then when you have those new running shoes. Oh, I love it. HA I think buying new running clothes is one of the perks! :) Its a girl thing. And yes, I have a pink running skirt......

WOW I can't believe you are already gearing up for that again! I am so proud and so envious. I would give anything (well almost) to be able to run again. Maybe if someone chased me. Like with a butcher knife or a gun. Then I would run. For now I'll visualize you running for me. I am going to have to get me some running shoes to sit in. LOVE YOU!

I am up with a baby too like Kedra except I'm in Abilene! I am the 5 AM feeding for now. Thinking of you as you must be stretching now and looking all hot in that pink running skirt and new tennies! Are they white on white? LOL.

Go Heather! You're so impressive! I'm proud to be your aunt, even tho I doubt if I'll ever experience the runners high! Maybe I'll make it back to the gym one of these days!
