Friends, Food and Conversation

Wednesday night Stacy and I treated Aurora to dinner since we were unable to join her at the three other ones she had to celebrate her birthday. It was the middle of the week so we were all dragging a little but boy was it worth it. The food was great and conversation even better. What we do without all the Tippy Tina's, Chatty Cathey's and Debbie Downer's of the world???

Day 1 - Proud

Tried out the Municipal Park today. Didn't realize how pretty it is out there. I asked one of the security guys out there how long the trail was before I started out. "Mile and a half," he said. "Can you make it?" "We'll see," I replied. I headed out and to my surprise made it all the way through without stopping in 15 minutes!!!!! I can already feel the soreness, only way to get rid of it--go back out tomorrow!

3 Weeks to 7500 meters

Since school started six weeks ago I've been trying to get back into some type of workout routine. I love running, I've always found it to be a great stress reliever. I used to be able to go out in the evenings for a run and go through all the craziness of work and life. It was like the stress, worries and drama was leaving my body stride by stride. I miss that and really want to get back into it but have just found excuse after excuse. Today while looking through a magazine I found a running road map, five weeks to a 5k it said. So I started doing some research and found a little more than a 5k in McAllen on October 25th. That's it. My goal is to be able to survive 4.7 miles in 20 days. The bigger challenge: getting Robert to run it with me and crossing the line before him!
